Palm Beach Sheriff’s Cadet Accused of Armed Robbery-Using his father’s, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Lt. David Combs’ unmarked patrol car, 22-year-old Christopher Combs drove south to Pompano Beach Florida to terrorize his ex-girlfriend of five years and her current boyfriend.

At about 1 a.m. Saturday October 14, in West Pompano Beach, Combs started following another vehicle where his old girlfriend was riding alongside her new boyfriend.

According to the arrest affidavit, Christopher Combs activated his dad’s unmarked Taurus’ blue lights and pulled the couple over, then used the P.A. system to order driver Robert Allen Roberts to get out of his pickup truck.

The victim complied with the demands, that “included to walk back towards the unmarked police vehicle with his hands up, to lay on the ground, and to empty out his pockets and place the contents on the ground.”

The victim reported to police he felt a hard, cold object in the back of his neck as Combs allegedly picked up Roberts’ wallet, credit cards, cash and pocket knife and left traveling east toward US 441.

Palm Beach Sheriff’s Cadet Accused of Armed Robbery-911 Call

Combs allegedly staged his robbery in a rural part of Pompano Beach, on Loxahatchee Road near the intersection with University Drive.

A PBSO spokeswoman confirmed Christopher Combs is a party-time civilian employee of the sheriff’s office. He is a cadet, which means he is paid while going to college.

He’s been with the agency since August 2016, but is not a sworn law enforcement officer.

He has been charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer, (A third degree felony), robbery with a weapon, (A first degree felony), and two counts of false imprisonment, (Third degree felonies).

The arrest report says the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Cadet Accused of Armed Robbery was arrested on active felony warrants.

At the time of his arrest, his bonds totaled $300,000

(1) Robbery With a Weapon –  Bond: $100,000

(2) Impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer – Bond: $100,000

(3) False Imprisonment – Bond: $ 50,000

(4) False Imprisonment – Bond: $ 50,000

But at his first appearance hearing the next morning (bond court), being the first case called in front of Broward County Judge GIUSEPPINA MIRANDA, who apparently seems to have more concern for members of law enforcement from another county than the safety of her own constituents, his bonds were lowered to nearly one third of the original set bonds at $300,000 to $120.000.

Judge Miranda, 55, of Fort Lauderdale has been a general magistrate with the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court since 2007. From 2004-2007, she was in the private practice of law and from 1999-2004, she served as an Assistant State Attorney in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit. Miranda has been a Board Member of the Broward County Women Lawyers’ Association since 2009.

She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and her law degree from Nova Law School. Miranda filled a vacancy created by the appointment of Judge Stacy Ross to the Circuit Court bench in 2013.

She was appointed by Governor Rick Scott on November 15, 2013 for a term that expires in 2017, this year. Meaning no one in Broward voted for her.

Miranda has been a Board Member of the Broward County Women Lawyers’ Association since 2009-We find that a little surprising since the alleged criminal actions of Christopher Combs are clearly a very serious, and potentially deadly, case of Domestic Violence.

It seems the judge didn’t even take that into consideration other than “the standard” stay away from the victims order.

This guy took his fathers unmarked police car, and possibly using a firearm, sought out and found his ex-girlfriend and current boyfriend in another county, and terrorized them.

This poor woman, who’s name we’re not releasing because we feel this was no different than any other rape, must of been terrified especially knowing it was her “psycho” ex, wanna be cop, with a gun.

It doesn’t matter if he actually had a firearm or not, he made them believe he did. Showing up in a police car, who wouldn’t.

Where is Women in Distress? Guess when the perpetrator is law enforcement, or family of, they’re not to be bothered.
