Former Police Chief Caught Shoplifting
A former police chief from a small town of Village of Alsip identified as Christopher Radz, 59 years old, was caught shoplifting from a Walmart store located in one of the most well-known retirement communities in Florida around 4:30 p.m. on October 5.
In a published article in FOX News, the former police chief was spotted by one of the officers inside the store picking up several items from a display and putting them inside the Walmart plastic bag. Deputies said that he passed all points of sale without paying the items he picked.
Furthermore, he was read his Miranda Rights during his arrest but he did not give any comments or response to the deputy.
Current Police Chief Was Surprised With the Arrest
According to a published article in Yahoo News, current Police Chief Jay Miller, who worked with Christopher Radz, was surprised by the news. He said, “The news surrounding his arrest is something I’m surprised to hear, as it’s out of character for the Chris I worked with for more than a decade.”
He also added, “The actions described in the media are not representative of well-being, and I hope Chris is able to address any potential needs that may have arisen in the six years since his retirement while the courts in Florida ensure that justice is served.”
