An NYPD Housing sergeant whose job is to root out low level misconduct in her precinct was suspended without pay Wednesday after she was arrested for shoplifting from a Macy’s in Westchester, police said.
Sgt. Eva Pena, 37, was caught trying to make off with about $400 worth of stuff from the department store at the Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers on Tuesday, cops said. She’s charged with petty larceny.
Pena allegedly took the price tags off six pieces of clothing and stuffed the items in her purse. Store security grabbed her before she left and found the stolen swag in her bag, sources with knowledge of the case said.
She was immediately suspended without pay after her bust, the NYPD confirmed.
