Former Military Police Officer FIRED For Filming Shoplifters Stealing Detergent

Santino Burrola, a former Military police officer, was fired from his job at a King Soopers grocery store in Colorado for filming shoplifters. Three people were stuffing a vehicle full of laundry detergent that they didn’t pay for. Burrola did not attempt to stop the men or interfere with them at all, but he did film the process. He also took the tin foil off of their license plate in order to record that and hand it to authorities. The vehicle’s driver was eventually arrested and found to have a prior felony record. The other two culprits have not been taken into custody as of the writing of this article.

Burrola gave an interview to local news about the shoplifting incident and his own subsequent firing. He stated that it is impossible for him to see criminality happening right in front of his eyes while he sits back and does nothing. King Soopers, which is owned by Kroger, has a policy of non-intervention when it comes to shoplifting. Employees are not allowed to impede the progress of shoplifters. Burrola insists that he did not violate the policy, he simply recorded them to have it on record. The Union he works for his currently in negotiation to allow him to resign instead of being terminated. Burrola says he is soon leaving Colorado for Florida.
