Edison, NJ, cop is placed on probation for shoplifting merchandise worth $42

EDISON -- A veteran Edison police officer was placed on probation for one year today for shoplifting about $42 in merchandise from a local supermarket where he was working as a security guard.  David Yanvary, 55, who served more than 27 years on the township police force, must also forfeit his employment and is permanently barred from holding a public job or law enforcement position in New Jersey.   Yanvary was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Frederick De Vesa in New Brunswick who told him "it is a very unfortunate thing that brings us here." 

"Our courts expect a police officer to uphold the law, not violate the law," De Vesa said. "You breached a position of trust."  Yanvary pleaded guilty in August to concealing $42.27 worth of merchandise, including Golden Blossom honey, canola oil, a DVD of the movie "Role Models" and a candle. He had paid for other items before leaving the ShopRite store the night of March 17.  The charge is a disorderly persons offense, but De Vesa said he was placing Yanvary on probation for because he wanted the probation department to "follow up and monitor your employment status."

Yanvary filed documents several weeks before the crime indicating his intention to retire from the force, his attorney, Timothy Smith of South Orange, said. Smith said today Yanvary will be retiring from the department.  "This is truly an unfortunate incident," he told the judge.  Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Manuel Sameiro asked the judge to place Yanvary on probation and read a quote from the report submitted by the probation department for today’s sentencing. Sameiro said the quote "said it better than I could."

"It is difficult to comprehend why this defendant would endanger his reputation and profession over $42," he read.

Should have been a cop in NOLA. Shop lifting is the norm for many of the NOPD.

I like to watch the Walmart being ransacked during Katrina while 4 NOPD officers walk down the aisles shopping for themselves.

A $104K per year detective and had no clue of cameras in the store where he worked. Incredibly stupid!

Abuse of power is not just with Pelosi and crew but much of the entire establishment. Police officers everywhere speed, run lights, and are observably the worse drivers on the road. This is disgusting. Throw the book at these guys. I just wish there was a book I could throw at congress.

I was wondering why you posted the story.

Good. All law enforcement officers should be expected to obey the law.

If only cops who did not pay their traffic tickets would get the same treatment.

He probably didn’t want his wife to see the receipt for that stuff. Seriously. Now I’m off to google the movie! (I’ll die laughing if it has a homo theme!)

From a synopsys of the movie. Not gay. Just really stupid. I wouldn’t want proof of ownership either:

************************************************

“Danny calls Wheeler and asks him and Ronnie to join the battle so that Augie will have enough teammates. They all show up dressed as KISS band members, and join the battle royale. Near the end of the battle, Augie starts a duel with the king and ends up defeating him. His victory is short-lived as a hidden player, Esplen, a girl he likes, attacks and defeats him. Augie’s parents, Gayle, and Beth see how Danny and Wheeler handle the kids and forgive them.

In the after-battle party, Augie finally hits it off with Esplen, and the two kiss. Gayle, impressed with the pair’s efforts, tells them that due to a long-standing relationship with the judge, she will be able to get their names cleared. Danny serenades Beth in front of everyone with an improvised version of the KISS song “Beth” and the two reconcile.”

Not to be picky or anything against this post, but am I the only one getting sick of criminal acts being described as “unfortunate circumstances” or “poor choices”? Sorry but I can’t work up much sympathy for this guy. He broke they law, now he’s going to pay the price.

I agree. And you can bet this wasn’t the first time he had stolen something either.

Are you saying an evening with "Esplen" and a jar of honey isn't worth a grand-theft rap?

I am told it is better to have tulips on your organ than to have roses on your piano.

in NJ? I wouldn't bet on that. There are many corrupt politicians who make the laws to take care of themselves if they were caught and some still collect pensions even though they were convicted of a felony.
