Bad Decision or Criminal Act?

Talk about bad decisions. Two girls were held at a mall for shoplifting. One of the girls calls this officer on his cell phone who comes in and leaves with the girls. Imagine the loss prevention personnel's surprise when they learned their call hadn't been dispatched and no officer had been sent to arrest the two girls. I would like to hear the other side of the story. If this is nothing more than a big misunderstanding then the officer needs to answer some hard questions.

".....came to the store in uniform and took the girls away, apparently after one of the girls called him on her cell phone...."

--Just how does this girl have his cell phone number? Relative, family friend, or other?

"....nor did he investigate the allegations or give security staff an offense report number, court documents state."

--Uh, why not?

The way I see it, why would he just take those girls and leave without calling the DA's office for charges? Why would he not leave them the case number? What made him think nobody would notice? This story will be good to keep an eye on.
