Crooked cop caught creepin’
Personal Trainer Cop Caught On Camera Breaking Into Client’s Car
A Texas cop who works as a personal trainer was arrested after a client used a hidden camera to find the man allegedly breaking into his truck during workouts at the gym.
Reginald Wilson — a police officer with the city of Whitehouse, about 100 miles southeast of Dallas — was busted after the victim, David Spivey, showed video of the burglary to local cops, KLTV reported.
“Who would have thought that somebody would go into my locker, get a key out and go in my truck?” Spivey told the news station. “Especially my trainer.”
Spivey said he was suspicious that someone close to him was stealing items from his pickup, because the bandit never left any signs of forced entry.
He eventually set up a camera in the backseat of the cab while it was parked at the Woodcreek Athletic Club in Tyler to catch the crook red handed.
And that he did…
Spivey also had a friend park next to the truck to keep watch.
As the camera inside Spivey’s truck recorded Wilson rummaging through the cab and pulling cash from the middle console, the friend recorded the break-in from outside.
Spivey brought the footage to cops, who arrested Wilson a short time later.
Wilson was jailed on two counts of burglary of a vehicle. He was suspended without pay from the Whitehouse Police Department.
Spivey said he was just happy to put the ordeal behind him.
We know cops don’t get paid much, but damn…
