WAUWATOSA -- Newly released surveillance video shows a former Wauwatosa detective stealing prescription drugs while on the job.

Investigators said Robin Schumacher stole narcotics from what's known as the "burn bin" inside the evidence room. It's where evidence goes once investigators have closed their cases.

According to court documents, Schumacher went into the evidence room at least six times over the course of a month -- all without authorization.

Schumacher was recently sentenced to 30 days at the House of Corrections and given 25 months probation.
