It’s cop versus cop in the small college town of Prairie View. It was back in 2013 when former Prairie View A&M officer Carita Holmes was arrested for felony theft. The police chief at Prairie View alleges Holmes stole her coworkers wedding band valued at $6,000.
That co-worker, fellow officer Sgt. Howard Sylve, says he left his wedding ring in the restroom at the Prairie View police station and it disappeared.
He says when he remembered to retrieve it the wedding band was gone.
Police Chief Zena Stephens says when she arrived at Prairie View as the new top cop she immediately confronted Holmes who admitted to having the ring but said she found it outside of the police department.
The 42 year old former cop was charged with a felony and arrested.
Her trial was scheduled to get underway this month but was put on hold because the court could not find enough jurors.
A new trial has not been set.
