Oct. 20--A Dallas police officer was indicted Monday on charges he planned and carried out a June robbery at a Red Bird-area Sam's Club where he worked off-duty security.
Officer Alph Coleman is charged with aggravated robbery in the June 27 incident at the store in the 2900 block of West Wheatland Road, police said. He was arrested in August and released on bail.
Officer Coleman, 29, was in uniform and working at the store that night when a masked gunman entered and held him at gunpoint, the officer told investigators. The robbery failed when employees locked themselves in a storage room and refused to give the suspects access to the vault.
Investigators ultimately identified holes in Officer Coleman's story and have said they have phone records indicating the officer and getaway driver were in contact shortly before the crime.
Floyd Gibson Jr., 37, and Christopher Johnson, 26, were also indicted on aggravated robbery charges. Mr. Gibson and Cecil Rosemond, 35, were indicted on a charge of conspiracy to commit robbery.
A decision will be made on whether to fire Officer Coleman once an administrative investigation is completed. He has been with the Police Department since 2004 and has no history of disciplinary problems, police said.
