The Baltimore City jail has suspended two correctional officers–both female African Americans–for having been caught on video looting a store during the recent rioting in that city.

The pair are now on suspension[1] pending a review of their employment status.

I guess you can take the girl out of the “hood” but…

Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard were charged with theft and two counts of burglary, according to a statement released by the Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services (DPSCS).

Investigators DPSCS and with the Intelligence and Investigative Division responded to a tip that the pair had joined in looting a closed 7-11 convenience store near downtown Baltimore on April 25. That was the first day of major unrest following the April 19 death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

Investigators viewed video from the store and identified Richard and Cobb leaving with merchandise. According to The Baltimore Sun, the video showed Richard and Cobb exiting the store with Slim Jims and Tostitos, respectively. Richard is seen wearing yellow sneakers while Cobb is wearing a dark jacket.

You can see the two women exiting the store early in this clip…
