METAIRIE – An NOPD officer resigned after allegedly shoplifting from the Lakeside Mall Apple Store while in uniform.
According to our partner at The New Orleans Advocate, Officer Ayona McGilberry was picking up her phone from the Apple Store when she asked about some “AirPods” wireless headphones, which retail for about $160.
McGillberry told the sales associate that she wouldn’t purchase them before allegedly walking out of the store with them while the staff watched.
Staff contacted the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office, which then contacted NOPD’s Public Integrity Bureau.
McGillberry was issued a summons by PIB and then resigned from her position, according to NOPD. She was given a misdemeanor theft court summons.
McGillberry joined the NOPD in July of 2016.
