Palm Beach Deputy Allegedly Caught on Camera Stealing From Dead Man's Home

Palm Beach Deputy Allegedly Caught on Camera Stealing From Dead Man's Home”

A Florida sheriff's deputy has been caught on surveillance cameras stealing drugs from a dead man's home.

The family also released a statement which read in part, "In our opinion, had we not had this video, this cop would still be out there posing a threat of danger to the community he swore to protect and committing more crimes".

What Palm Beach County sheriff's Deputy Jason Cooke may not have known: The home's surveillance system detected motion inside the home and instantly notified Moe Rosoff's sons, who watched the footage from afar and notified authorities, a sheriff's report says. His father, Moe Rosoff, had remained alone during the hurricane.

The man had died after falling and hitting his head during a power outage after Hurricane Irma hit in September. Rosoff died the same day.

It had been just 90 minutes after paramedics took a dying 85-year-old man from his West Boynton home to the hospital. The family later turned the video in to police. Cooke is charged with burglary and grand theft with a firearm.

He was arrested but not until five weeks later.

The home's surveillance camera alerted Jay Rosoff and his brother Steven that there was movement inside their father's home. The deputy learned the entry code by listening to the initial call, officials said.

Kaplan said Cooke was addicted to pain medication and was in the middle of treatment when he was arrested. The man is then observed walking down a hallway into the bedroom.

Investigators say Cooke rummaged through cabinets and drawers throughout the house.

Cooke disappears as he goes to the rooms in the front of the house. After viewing the video, the family reported to the authorities.

"We were outraged and disgusted when we viewed this", the family said.

Cooke was placed on paid administrative leave after being granted bond.

. He was questioned and confessed to taking Tramadol from the home.

Investigators say shortly after the scene cleared, Cooke, who was not on the original call, showed up to the home and went inside.

In a statement, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said it "holds its employees to the highest standards and never forgets about its duty to preserve the public's trust".

WPBF reported that the Sheriff's Office did not comment on Cooke's employment status, but released a statement saying, "Unfortunately sometimes an employee makes a bad decision which leads to misconduct".

The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office said the case was still under investigation. Cooke is due back in court on November 20.

The attorney said his client has faced "traumatizing" circumstances in both his personal life and in his job as a police officer.

"The video speaks for itself, and it highlights the epidemic we're dealing with", Kaplan said.
