Baltimore police officer stole $100,000 from citizens in years-long robbery spree — and brought his son along for the crime

A fifth former Baltimore police officer pleaded guilty Wednesday in the U.S. Department of Justice racketeering case against the since-disbanded the Baltimore Gun Trace Task Force.

Former Sergeant Thomass Allers, 49, admitted to committing nine robberies over a two year period, including one robbery that included Allers’ son, WBAL TV reported.

“Prosecutors said a west Baltimore man was shot and killed in July 2016 after Allers stole $10,000 from him, leaving him unable to pay off a drug debt,” I-Team reporter Jayne Miller noted.

Allers was the supervisor of the Baltimore Police Gun Trace Task Force.

The Baltimore Sun reports they have ‘been unable to identify or locate’ the adult son, who is not a police officer but allegedly participated in a raid with his father and two other detectives in which they stole $66,000.

Sgt. Wayne Jenkins succeeded Allers as the supervisor of the Baltimore Police Gun Trace Task Force.

Detective Sean Suiter was murdered the day before he had been scheduled to testify against Jenkins.

Aller’s lawyer has promised his client is not cooperating with authorities against other officers.

Allers resigned from the force two weeks ago. He will be sentenced in February. Jenkins will stand trial in January.

WATCH: Roger Stone greeted with ‘Lock Him Up!’ chants after getting sentenced to 40 months

Trump ally Roger Stone frequently led chants of "Lock her up!" about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign -- but on Thursday, the table decisively turned.

After Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for charges of perjury, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice, a crowd of people greeted the right-wing dirty trickster by chanting, "Lock him up!" outside the courthouse.

At least one supporter of President Donald Trump tried to get a "pardon" chant going, but they were drowned out by the louder "Lock him up" chants.

Watch the video below.

‘Beg to be tried as a white man’: Disgust follows Roger Stone’s light sentence — while people of color sit in jail for less

Published

Judge Amy Berman Jackson was the target of serious attacks by President Donald Trump's supporters and Roger Stone himself. When the Justice Department encouraged seven to nine years in prison for Stone, Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr freaked out, rewriting the sentencing memo that was ultimately ignored by the new prosecutors.

But Stone wasn't given the hefty sentence that Trump and his followers assumed Stone would get. Instead, he got a fairly light sentence of just over three years.

Leading up to the sentence, Berman Jackson was blasted on Twitter. So, it's unclear how Trump and his followers will manage to attack the judge for the sentence. Some still managed to do it, saying Stone shouldn't have been sentenced to any time at all.

Trump supporter made death threat to whistleblower’s lawyer one day after president targeted him at rally: feds

A Trump supporter has been charged with making death threats to Mark Zaid, an attorney who represents the whistleblower who filed a complaint against President Donald Trump over his efforts to extort the Ukrainian government.

Politico reports that Michigan resident Brittan J. Atkinson emailed a violent threat to Zaid just one day after the president held up the attorney's photo at one of his rallies and read some of his tweets.

“All traitors must die miserable deaths,” Atkinson allegedly wrote in the email, which was sent on November 7th. “Those that represent traitors shall meet the same fate. We will hunt you down and bleed you out like the pigs you are. We have nothing but time, and you are running out of it. Keep looking over your shoulder. We know who you are, where you live, and who you associate with. We are all strangers in a crowd to you.”
