HPD INTERNAL AFFAIRS SINKS ITS CLAWS INTO LOBSTER THEFT INVESTIGATION

HPD sources have confirmed that a veteran HPD Officer is finding herself in hot water over alleged theft of lobsters and other seafood from the New Park Avenue Stop and Shop. Officer Natoya Guthrie is apparently being investigated for the theft of the lobsters while using the self checkout line recently at the store.

 The incident was apparently observed by Store security personnel and referred to a Hartford Police Officer that was working a private job as part of the store's security efforts. Sources have also confirmed that it is believed that this was not the first time Guthrie used the scheme at the self checkout register.

 A review of Guthrie's shopping records and  Stop and Shop customer card and related seafood purchases caused Stop and Shop to review other video that apparently uncovered other instances. The Hartford Police Internal Affairs Division is working hard to crack the case. In the meantime Officer Guthrie may be transferred to the HPD Marine Unit Dive Team to acquire her seafood direct from the sea

Fireman selling crack and Police persons stealing crabs, This City is F^&*ed Up, Big Time !!!!

Kevin I have it on good authority that Officer Guthrie called her husband and told him not to grill any steak tonight because she was coming home with the crabs.

Two years in teleserve hardly constitutes a " veteran".

Red Lobster said...

Mr. Brookman I'm just thankful you got a hold of this incident so that another indiscretion by this particular officer, and yes she has had many, doesn't get swept under the rug....again. This is an embarassment to our department not only because it makes the rest of us look like crap to the public, but because the stop and shop where she stole from pays out thousands of dollars a year to us to hire pjs. Its shameful behavior and there's no excuse for it. The self checkout area is pretty easy to use; I mean the stupid register/computer talks to you and tells you the price of what you're scanning and sometimes even the name of the item.

And please...Mr. Brookman, don't refer to her as a "veteran".Four years doesn't constitute a veteran as is, never mind the fact that most of her "time on the job" has been behind a desk because she is such a trainwreck on the street

KEVIN BROOKMAN said...

Red lobster,

I appreciate your comments and just so you know, I will be submitting an FOI request for her full background report prior to her hiring as well as her personnel records.

I also understand there are some problems brewing at Walmart in relation to the PJ's.

I am wiiling to bet the comment meter breaks the last record holder. That waste of a uniform still polishing apples on the second floor internet lawyer degree that trips in the rear lot to prevent going on the street!!!!!

Its pretty common knowledge that this officer used to be the hairdresser of a certain backgrounds detective.....hmmmmm you don't say.. She should have been let go when she showed up to work on FTO with red hair!!! Far worse then pink hand-cuffs.. Sorry jill...
But now it will take an act of god to get her outta here.

Im sure she has already safely nestled in a thick cacoon by the Guard....s, and will be protected through the usually drill here by claiming stress and mental lapse due to racial tension...Verbal warning at best....

Speaking of irrelevent topics, why does captain crunch, 200, still walk around like he owns the dept????????

Haywood Jablowme said...

Lets not forget that she was in a vehicle stopped at a checkpoint in Hartford and it looked like cheech and chong were hot boxing the car. Im sure car 8 on days will take care of it. Im sure a certin Sgt. Tron will ride in on his motorcycle to save the day. Maybe even a zone commander can offer "favors" to help her out of any issues that will arise. To bad Du-Wop left she could have driven him to her boyfriends barbour shop at 100 mph.

Crabby Patty said...

The security guy at Stop and Shop is a really good kid, and that disgrace of an Officer really put him in a bad position. I would really love to see him get on board with HPD, I think he would make a great Cop. He needs to leave that hell hole of a job. Ever since the incident, he hasnt been back in the store. Pretty sad he got in trouble for somebody elses actions.

Let Channel 3 run with this one, then watch the coverup fall apart. And why does another famous officer in teleserve
1. Steal another officer's boots
Nothing done
2. Mails a bullet to someone and admits it.
3. Forgets to guard a homicide scene at hospital.
4. gets to play chess and watch tv in teleserve, what a punishment..

The New Turnip said...

Its pretty sad when my cousin from out of town made comments at riverfest about the marine unit officer that in his un expert opinion looked like he could not save a floating coke can. Is there a swim test, or made a flotation test. I honestly was a little embarassed. But I understand that Im new and stuff here works in different ways. I just hope if I am drowning that someone that does not appear to be morbadly obeses attempt to stand there with his hands in his pockets. But my wife kinda thought ofc Bamgardener was swell...

Mr. Brookman,
I see that you allow your band of minions to make any disturbing comment that they like. It will be very interesting when complaints are filed with the NAACP to not only stop these accusations, but also help you to better understand life's ups and downs. I prey to the good lord that this proud ethnic queen gets her day, and prooves to all that she beat all the odds of injustice!

KEVIN BROOKMAN said...

Mr. Proud,

Why is it always about race? If she actually is a proud person, she would work to pay for her food rather than steal it with the video recording every step. I don't think you will find in the original posting anywhere I mentioned the officers race. And trust me your "proud etnic queen" will have her day, most likely in front of a Judge. She needs to be treated the same as anyone else caught stealing at Stop and Shop.

God help us, it's reasons like this that our City and our Country are pretty much shot. And just to show you I'm not racist, why does Jason Thody still have a job? Talk about useless, spent a few months on the street then gets put in fingerprinting and somehow ends up as a Commander for ERT and this is after he gets his ass whipped by a couple of combat Marines that he started a fight with. What a friggin mess!!

Why is it always about race?

Gotta Love all the racism in this place good ole HPD since its painfully obvious all you guys hate Black people why the hell are you working in Hartford bunch of cowards on here half you bastards are scared to live in hartford an if this job required that you not carry a gun you wouldnt be here freaking sad you all bring up NAACP an the Guardians I guess all Black orginations are bad This Website is truly a Ku Klux Klansman Heaven

Anonymous said...

The reason NAACP and Guardians were brought up is because the Officer in question has reached out to them in an effort to save her job. At least that's what we are hearing.

Her ploy to save her job is inconsequential if she's proven to be guilty of larceny because CT has Public Trust laws that prevent any officer convicted of larceny or caught lying on official court documents from serving as a police officer. Race has no relevance.

SHE is the one who is making this about race because that's about the only card she has left when there's overwhelming evidence against her. Which I'm sure Kevin will be providing soon.

Why is this always about race? Im a WHITE police officer that works with some awesome BLACK police officers!

Scales of Justice said...

I read through this blog and see comments that are relevant and comments that aren't relevant to this latest incident. The bottom line is forget the NAACP, the Gardians and any other social or political organization that might get named later, the question is do we want a thief on the Police Force? The correct answer should be NO. This person can't use the excuse of economic injustice, the PJ's are plentiful, or social injustice, she took an oath to uphold the law and be held to higher standard.
If this is what's ment by resembling or representing the community the officers serve ( poor hirining process) were in trouble, then by allowing this behavior, we do a dis-service to the other individuals who came from the city who uphold the law and take their oath of office serious.
This is not the first time she's done this, it's just the first time she's got caught. The best thing she can do is to just admit what she did and go back to hairdressing, or face a prosecutor who kicked her out of her class for cheating in a test. Maybe her drug dealing boy friend will rent her a chair.

Seriously, why are there SEVERAL abandoned vehicles parked in the rear of police headquarters. No parking permits, and some no plates?????

Anonymous said...

The mere threat of race and hurt feelings always comes up when someone feels wronged, but the fact is, all the incidents over the past two-three years, its not about race, its about lazyness and thinking you can get away with it because you are a different race and has been wronged over the past 500 years. Bull, this excuse is always used, Im sick of it.......

Anonymous said...

Laziness is something exercised greatly in this department. Then once the person is called on it, or instructed to do their job, they claim racism and unfair selection. But the fact is, this job is soooooo easy, some people cant even show up on time, or respond to the dispatcher. Yet a verbal warning will solve all the problems. Once these lazy cops start doing serious suspensions, they will change, but yet again, the guardians will blame it all on the MAN.....

non occonnor supporter said...

Internal affairs needs to be made up of a third party non department related personnel. Verbals for some, suspensions for others. Selectiveness runns rampid in this place. Im going to bet gutherie keeps her job and joins the rest of the group of lazy and useless. But do the useless even care? the answer is no, because a guaranteed pay check every friday...

Jason Thody is a proud officer. He deserves respect and has proved to be an essential part of hard work at this department. He patrols his district with the vigor of a hungry wolf and cares about each and every citizen in ZOne 8. He has been taught the fime art of police work from ''chilly'' and WILL be wearing a star or two when the dust clears. So show some respect!!!!!!!!!!!

KEVIN BROOKMAN said...

Mr. Proud African,

your idle threats do not intimidate me. I suggest you go back through the blogs archives and look at the positive outcome for many minorities after their stories were posted here. Knock off your racist agenda and look at the facts.

And if you are such a champion for equal rights, why not post under your real name, I do.

Keep It real said...

I have been a reader of this blog for sometime now and I must say it has been informative. However i have a question for some of the police insiders who post. I might be wrong but when officer Sean Collins was arrested and convicted of making racist statements and threaten to kill a man by placing a knife to his throat. Doing this all because the man would not agree that white people are superior to black people. I do not recall reading on this blig how the police felt about this. Kevin can you repost those comments. I would like to read them.Brookman did your inside informants tell you about this Hartford police. I wounder why no one talked about him? Is it because they fell the same way? This cop lied to his officer friends when he was arrested and hid a loaded .45 glock and gun holster in the bathroom. And you want the community to work with the department. Show me some concern first. Then the good cops will get the respect they deserve.

Spare 18 said...

Kevin,
You can take the Rat out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the Rat! It dosen't matter if your a cop or a dispatcher.
Loose the residency requirement and make it state wide. Hartford is missing out on alot of quality candidates. The Hartford Police Department considers itself a paramillitary organization. Really,really! where are the prior millitary candidates?
Have a Nice Day!

Justice for all said...

I will be long retired before any positive changes are made to the culture at the Hartford Police Department. I've had to accept the ignorance that dominates it and City Hall. When I pushed a cruiser in the North End I found that the most racist area was the Main St and Tower Ave area. I had recieved several complaints from white contractors who were attempting to install new water mains to residents in the area that when they went to buy a coffee at the local Dunkin Donuts, they were told, "you have to leave, we don't serve white people here" The contractor went and purchased a coffee maker for the MDC Field office. Instead of living off the race card, learn the history behind Hartford and what Hartford contributed to this country 100 plus years ago. You should be proud to be a resident, leave the race out of it until you contribute something. FYI, I watched the Olympics. I never saw Gabby throw the race card! In my book she is the African Queen!

If Officer Guthrie did in fact commit the act which she is accused, then she should be fired. No ifs, ands, or maybes. But let's not forget there is an officer who has yet to be punished for destroying evidence. Let's not let "Lobstergate" overshadow something just as egregious (well, almost).
There are so many things going on right under Jimmy's nose (or maybe not). One would think the way the 5 Amigos are jockeying for their turn to lick his scrotum for a * that he would know everything(tough getting the chauffeur out the way I'm sure, but good luck fellas). There are MORE larcenous acts going on under the guise of it being a private duty or traffic detail. Oh! That's right! They're not telling him because they're the ones stealing and trying to recreate the PJ hiring system because they want to make money NOT be the administrators that they were hired to be when promoted. Very few are working 8hour days after they get a 10hr PJ. I guarantee that. Try tagging evidence on B-Squad after IP has a job. IMPOSSIBLE! Audit the time cards from the big Meadows concerts(and Riverfest) and and see if the LTs and Capts worked 8hrs before the start time or did they burn time that they won't allow anyone else to burn(IF they burned their time at all). Why do the same guys get an additional 4+hrs every time there is a job hired out of 525? Where is that list???
Let's move Mr. Personality out of the PJ Office too while we're at it. That way he and his Capt. can respond Code 3 to Supercuts (bet Fallon is turning over in his grave).
Why is our non ERT LT allowed to carry an assault rifle. He's already killed one on the other side of the city. Now we're gonna let him kill a Latino too? Let's stop feeding in to the Napoleon Syndrome.
Now that Jimmy's slowly fading the old regime out(Thank GOD), who's gonna take their places? Well, the chauffeur is a lock. We all know that. Supercuts 1 has a strong chance. But the rest are a mystery. UNLESS, the standards are going to be lowered to allow "Administrators" without minimally a Bachelor's Degree to wear a *. Hmmmm

Gets a job you money grubbing greedy SOB's have to complain. It's probably the job you wouldn't of worked or weren't signed up for because your too tired. Keep running your mouths and you'll ruin a good thing.

No one here is taking money out of your pocket. Enough is enough just stop acting like a bunch of immature cry babies and do your job, other people in the private sector wish they had your ability to supplement their income, so jut stop your belly aching and be greatfull for what you do have.

The last comment def sounds like someone that works special details.....Why don't you go to 25 calls for service instead of staring at a computer and stalk the pj office for those two hour js...

Why is Gutherie still in the field pushing a patrol car with half a dozen open investigations against her.....The bar is pretty low now.

Anonymous said...

Gutherie has also failed to comply with department policy by failing to turn in a dozen reports, and then put forged skeleton reports in instead,,,,, but its ok...Car 8 will handle it when she returns form her injuries as a result of another cruiser accident.....

At least the accident was not racially motivated........

Most of us do push cruisers and work doubles, so why don't you give up the supervisors suv and take some calls yourself.

Bunch of "Sallies!" If you spent as much time addressing crime and writing your reports and treating the people of Hartford with a little respect maybe it would be a better place to work in.

No all you can do is complain about what you have or don't have or what you think someone else got that you deserved.

Please grow up and make a difference by your actions not your wasted hatred on this blog. Show the kids hanging on Albany Avenue and other areas what a really man is and how they act. We know that the families have broken down in Hartford and all the money taxed from us will not fix the family problems.

Be men! be an example. Lead by example, follow lawful orders and DO WHAT IS RIGHT. The rest will sort it self out in time.

Hey traffic cone, spoken like a true professional mirror starer. How many calls for service have you gone to in the last five years? Everyone should be on the road and turn the city around, not trying to brake money records and start bar fights.... have you forgotten that every single person at this dept are not perfect?

Orange traffic cone said...

Hey O'Connor club ....
You are a straight up idiot.

Again, you have missed the point.

What because you have to do what most of have already done and did when the city was more violent makes you some sort of expert on patrol.

Please get some time on the job beore you act like your owed something.. Stop your bitchin and just sign on line and do your job, which in case you forgot was to answer calls for service.

Mr. Brookman,

The racial implications that this blog has generated is past the point of no return. I assure my fellow readers and MR.Brookman that the necessary contacts and conversations havetaken place. It is extremely disturbing and obtuse that this blog has spread the evil hand of intolerance and unequality. Swift action has been promised and there will be no ''freedom of speech'' glass house to crawl under.

good day,

Mr. African North End Resident.

Hey kevin,
Keep up the good work. Several vengefull people in the dept. are heading for the hills, and scared to death of your blog....

KEVIN BROOKMAN said...

inside man,

from what I am told, IAD has the recordings in their possesion and has reviewed them. They will also be at Stop and Shop next week getting a crash course in self check out operations to see if Guthries excuses hold any weight

KEVIN BROOKMAN said...

Mr .Proud,

again no real name associated with your baseless comments. Just to be sure though,I just pulled up the larceny statutes on ct.gov and no where does it mention ones race as an affirmitive defense to larceny. no race is apparently allowed to steal without being held accountable. You might do more for your "people' by supporting the truth and holding al races accountable for their actions

Anonymous said...

The self checkout could be operated by a blind person, there are no excuses. Her only excuse that is she was attempting to save the lobsters by being humane and returning them to their natural habitate. If this holds truth, she should be issued the HPD huamitarian award. Like the other one who tried to recycle his vehicle istead of paying the loan..........opppppsssss

Whiskey for brekfast said...

Dear Chief,
I am very pleased to hear some of your much needed ideas and fixes that will start soon. SHAKE IT UP!!!! Please also get rid of this flex/ change schedule to work traffic detail personna. Get the dept back to police work, not plumping pensions and making 150k as a greedy warload.

ps Send some hair clippers to the headquarters unit/ pj office( dirty hire unit)No more unposted meadows/ secret ot!!!time to be fair..

JUSTICE FOR DAILY!!! said...

Next step is to remove the internet springfield lawyer outta the complex, but do it before snow arrives on the ground. Cause people who don't wanna work tend to slip in the rear lot. She dug her own issues since she thinks she is immune to federal workplace standards. We should release some of her medical records, would be a plump file.

The Storm is commith!!!! said...

All these haters here are gonna wish Roberts stayed after next week. SCHOOL IS IN SESSION. No more two hour work days and 10 hr road jobs for dessert. A new Sheriff is in town!!!His Name is Wyatt Rovella...Sigersmith can be Doc Holliday....

Kevin, you can be a deputy..Maybe...

There is a storm coming, and even though you don't believe so, you will have wished you did not keep all that greed and power to yourselves!!!Better baten down the hatches.

When is the Hulk's going away party? Are you going Kevin?

Anonymous said...

You "complainers" are ridiculous. You're all working more than any of you ever have and you still find something to complain about. I guarantee in two years when the next two classes retire, most of the b.s. and complaining will end.

It's not the officers complaining, it's the sgt's and Lt's who want to leave with $100k+ pensions. If you all want to work so badly then hand in your bars/stripes, push a cruiser and you can get your 6 pj's a week.

I, myself would like to see the flex hours come to an end since I'm not allowed to take an hour to work a pj, but a CSO can. I also don't think it's fair that i can work as much ot as I want before a "non-patro"l guy can work even one a week. There are perks to every division in the Dept. and if you don't agree then you're living in a fantasy world devised of your own greed and selfishness.

Get your minds out of the money gutter and try to work together to build back some of the comradery that has been lost.

A squad patrol ofc said...

Hey 420A,
Those are motivational comments you made at role call today. You seem to care so much about ethics and talking smack, but you yourself should lead by example. Don't tell thers to do something that you yourself don't follow. And since ethics are so high are your list of priorities, why do you made degrading remarks about other officers on the I- Call system, you really thing no one listens or writes down the date and time.... wow and oh ya, since you are fimiliar with pulling dispatch tapes, that my friend is also illegal and your past write ups for that stuff is also proof that YOU yourself need to lead by example......I almost put my name to this, but I'm sure you would use deciveing means to punish me.....

recorded I-calls for future lawsuit said...

Good negative role call speech 420A, you inspire me to call the union and file a grievance.......I thinks you need to conform with the NEW postive HPD and let that ''do what you want'' old regime additude retire itself. Also, stop using work time to build your house....a little conflict there doncha thinks..........

We like reading this blog, I was listening to 99.3 last Sunday and heard about the positive effects this blog has had on Hartford, CT. We loved the lobstergate story and are hooked.
I believe that Springfield, MA is planning to start one for themselves

Right is right and wrong is just plain ole wrong. She knows better and what kind of example is she setting for her little son? That its ok to be a local police officer and steal at the same time! Well I have no pitty for her & if she loses her job then good for her. She doesn't deserve to have a job like this in the first place cause obiviously she "doesn't know the rule"!

Dear Mr. Brookman,

I am still extremely upset with the continued hatefull remarks aimed towards this african woman of color. Have you ever made a mistake under stress? Oh ithought you were perfect. I myself am not, but by the grace of the good lord, I will try to bring happiness and not pass hateful judgement like you and your minions who subsribe to your ring of fire.

Gutherie should not be on the street, it is embarassing that she is still taking arrest reports and enforcing laws that is well above her level of obvious comprehention

Flush this turd quickly

KEVIN BROOKMAN said...

Mr. Proud,

I have been allowing your comments to go through, but I am becoming tired of your nonsense, from this point on your comments will be deleted. If you want to give her some advice, tell her to resign before the arrest warrants start coming, she may be able to make excuses for the lobster thefts , but the NCIC abuse is well documented, and since other officers have been arrested for the same thing, the precedent has already been set and you won't be able to cry racism on that one

Anonymous said...

What do PJ's or anything that has to do with pj's jave to do with a cop who stole lobsters?...Nothing, so why don't 220-B, 110-C and the rest of you whiners stick to the main topic and leave your bs complaining to your miserable selves. It's the same sgts and lts all the time.

The saddest part about it is, no matter what you say under some random name or "anonymous" everyone knows who's posts are who's and you're foolish to think otherwise.

Hey Kevin,

I bet you a bag of clams Mr. Proud is an unhappy certain person at HPD that hates your blog and just wants to get a rise outta ya. I have narrowed my two guesses to two.
Mr. Proud defends someone because of thier skin color, and not because of the several, and iis confirmed, several Felony Charges coming soon. Forget Lobster-Gate, it is now NCIC-Gate.....

Officer G was a mess when she was a cadet..still a mess. The person that should be fired from HPD is Eric Smith..he is just pathetic. Overall HPD has a lot of great men and women on the force. Just remove the bad apples and the city would be a great place to do business and live.
