Broward deputy accused of shoplifting at WalMart 7 times, once while in uniform, records show

A Broward sheriff’s deputy finds himself suspended without pay and facing a felony charge after being accused of shoplifting everyday household items from two WalMarts in Coral Springs, according to records obtained Friday by the Sun Sentinel.

Surveillance video shows Deputy Dean Korenic, 46, shoplifting on seven occasions, investigators say. He was in uniform one of the times and drove away with his stolen goods in a marked patrol car three other times, records show.

A 14-year veteran of the agency, Korenic was arrested Tuesday and spent a night in jail before posting $3,500 bond on a felony charge of scheme to defraud/obtain property under $20,000, records show.

“In review of the video … the theft was apparent and intentional,” an affidavit said. “The thefts were committed both in and out of BSO uniform.” Sheriff’s officials would not provide the videos to the Sun Sentinel Friday.
