Anchorwoman charged in alleged shoplifting scheme

By From page A5 | August 03, 2014

FOLSOM — An Emmy award-winning television news anchor in Sacramento is facing grand theft charges in connection with the alleged shoplifting of $2,500 worth of Coach wallets.

Television station KCRA reports that Sabrina Rodriguez, a reporter and anchor at Fox 40 News in Sacramento, turned herself into Folsom police on Thursday after a warrant was issued for her arrest.

KCRA says the warrant alleges that Rodriguez helped an accomplice steal the wallets from an outlet store in Folsom last year.

KTXL, Fox 40 News’ parent station, said in a short story posted on its web site Friday that Rodriguez maintains she is innocent and has taken a voluntary leave from her job.

The Sacramento Bee says Rodriguez has worked at Fox 40 News since 2011 and was promoted to early morning anchor last year.

    I'm sure this is a simple misunderstanding. Ms. Rodriquez was probably just practicing her religious freedom. Who knows what the heck those folks over at FOX are thinking?

    Don't know if she is innocent or guilty but I prefer to let the legal system to run its course. We could however talk about the lovely Bernie Ward or Anthony wiener or many of the left lovelies.
