BALTIMORE (The Baltimore Sun) — Two Baltimore correctional officers were charged Wednesday with looting a downtown convenience store during unrest last month over the death of Freddie Gray, officials said.

Tamika Cobb and Kendra Richard were caught on video taking merchandise from the 7-Eleven on the corner of W. Baltimore and Howard streets on April 25, the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services said.

It was one of several stores that were damaged and looted in the city when protests turned violent over the death of Gray, 25, a week after he suffered a severe spinal injury in police custody.

The officers, who were both assigned to facilities downtown, were charged with theft and burglary and placed on unpaid leave, the department said.

In the video, posted to YouTube, Richard is seen coming out of the store holding Slim Jims, while Cobb has Tostitos chips, police said. Police identified Richard as the woman exiting the store wearing yellow tennis shoes, black Adidas jogging pants and a jean jacket. They said Cobb was the one in yellow shoes, blue pants and a black sweatshirt with a large white graphic on the front.
