A B.C. RCMP Sergeant has found himself on the other side of the law.
He’s making his first court appearance Tuesday, charged with theft and breach of trust, and he isn’t the first officer to be charged from the same detachment.
Former Lillooet RCMP Sergeant Darrell Robinson is facing four counts of breach of trust and four counts of theft.
The former diamond jubilee recipient is accused of stealing guns, growing nutrients and a generator from an evidence locker between May 2010 and July 2012.
The 51-year-old is suspended with pay.
He’s the second former member of the Lillooet detachment facing criminal charges in connection with items allegedly taken from the exhibit locker.
Constable Tony Lee pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of mischief in April and was given an absolute discharge.
That’s the lowest sentence an offender can get meaning no probation, no jail time, and no conviction is registered.
