The interesting thing is they didn’t fire her, they let her resign. Wonder how many other reporters they would have done that for?
A Fox40 news anchor accused of helping her partner steal wallets worth more than $2400 has resigned from her job.
Police claim March 2013 security camera footage shows Sabrina Rodriguez, who worked as a news presenter for the TV network Fox40, helping her partner Nicholas Gray take 10 wallets, worth $2500, from a Sacramento store without paying.
Rodriguez has now been charged with grand theft, burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime.
Court documents obtained by The Desk show a Folsom Police Department officer was called to the Coach outlet store on March 24 last year after employees had been told by a witness that Gray had been seen taking wallets without paying.
A review of the in-store footage showed Rodriguez directing Gray to the wallets and helping conceal his actions as he placed them in his personal bag.
It was when Gray was arrested for an outstanding warrant in May this year that a search warrant was received to check his iPhone, and text messages were found allegedly implicating Rodriguez in the thefts.
Text message conversations between the two showed Gray telling Rodriguez: ‘I got 8 $350 cashmere sweaters plus skirts I got rent’.
And in separate instance, Rodriguez responded to his texts, telling him: ‘I love when a plan comes together’.
