A San Francisco police sergeant has been placed on unpaid leave after he was arrested earlier this week in connection with a robbery at a Rite Aid in San Mateo, police officials said.
Officers in San Mateo arrested the sergeant following a robbery that happened Wednesday around 6 p.m. at the store located at 666 Concar Drive, according to San Mateo Police Officer Alison Gilmore.
He was arrested on suspicion of robbery and resisting arrest, Gilmore said, adding that he is currently out of custody.
San Mateo police haven’t released any other details about the robbery investigation, which remains ongoing.
According to San Francisco police, the sergeant joined SFPD in 1994 and he’s currently assigned to the department’s Field Operations Bureau. On Thursday, the department placed him on unpaid leave pending an internal investigation.
