Former Police Corporal Gets Probation for Being 'Lookout'

A judge offered Rick Bobby Alexander probation before judgment, but he will serve 60 days in jail for allegedly warning drug suspects about a police raid.

Rick Bobby Alexander of Pasadena, a former Anne Arundel County police corporal who was accused by colleagues of being a “lookout” during a raid on Feb. 2, was offered probation before judgment at a hearing on Tuesday.

Police arrested Alexander on Feb. 3 for allegedly in Shady Side so they could hide their drugs prior to the arrival of law enforcement at the 1300 block of Juniper Street. 

", we got a call from Officer Alexander saying the SWAT team is behind the Domino's gearing up to hit our house right now," a person identified as Suspect No. 1 told police, according to the charging documents back in February. 

Alexander was charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana plus three other charges.

According to online court records, Alexander received probation before judgment for misconduct and was sentenced to serve 60 days in jail.

A woman reportedly told police that Alexander called her to warn that police were going to search the Shady Side home. The Baltimore Sun reported that Kristin Riggin, spokeswoman for the prosecutors' office, said the woman had a relationship with Alexander.

The issue at hand is not just the crime that Mr. Alexander committed. Its the entire Maryland judiciary system. most all crimes result in PBJ and a fine, only to put the criminal back on the streets to continuing doing there jobs as criminals.

he put his comrades in danger. this guy was tipping off criminals to impending police raids?? how nice of him. pbj? that must tear down the morale at the police department. unless these other officers dont care that they had this creep amongst them. i would have wanted jail time, if this guy had been my co-worker, or worse, my superior. he is out tipping off drug dealers for a case of beer or something. what a dirty b***h.

This is hardly what I consider justice. PBJ used to mean something good (peanut butter and jelly), but now it's just a way to let criminals off with a lecture or slap on the wrist. He put his fellow officers in jeopardy.
