According to the NY Daily News Crime Wire, Officer Richard Quinn of the 71st Precinct in Crown Heights was charged with larceny and suspended from his post for attempting to steal a pair of headphones from the Best Buy Electronics store in Bensonhurst, N.Y.

He was off-duty at the time, reported sources said today, and was caught by a security guard at the store at about 9 p.m. on Thursday, February 17.

No details have emerged as to the make and model of said headphones, although this does confirm our suspicions that people do, in fact, still listen to music.
