NEW YORK — A New York Police Department detective has been suspended without pay after allegedly stealing more than $2,500 from a Brooklyn deli that authorities were raiding, officials confirmed Friday.

A spokesperson with the NYPD told BuzzFeed News that Detective Ian Cyrus had been stripped of his gun and badge pending an investigation. Cyrus' commanding officer, Sargent Fritz Glemaud, was placed on desk duty.

The alleged theft took place last Friday, during a raid at the Yemen Deli, a grocery store in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Cyrus and four other detectives arrested two of the deli's employees on suspicion that they were selling untaxed cigarettes, seizing $593 as evidence.

But then, surveillance footage appears to show, Cyrus pocketed several wads of cash, which he then did not report.

"I look at my system, I see the officer took the money," Ali Abdullah, the deli's manager, told ABC, which first reported the story. "It's crazy!"

Abdullah told ABC that he was missing $2,650, which was intended to pay the store's rent.

Calls to telephone numbers registered on Cyrus name went unanswered.
