Stephen Sargent, a new officer on the Houston police force, was arrested at a Academy Sports and Outdoors store for allegedly stealing $60 worth of ammunition. KPRC reports:

Officials with the Houston Police Department said Sargent has only been on the force for a few months and was still listed as a probationary officer. As to why he would allegedly steal ammunition — for now, we are waiting to hear from Sargent himself.

“Obviously he shouldn’t need it for his job,” says [customer Chris] Kelly.

Sargent was charged with theft, and his bond is set at $500. His first court appearance is set for Feb. 23.
