Robbery Investigation Arrest

The Birmingham Police Department reports today that detectives have arrested and charged a suspect in connection with two robbery investigations. The first incident took place on July 13, 2013, at approximately 1:30 a.m. on 51st Street between Terrace M and Court M. The second incident, which also involved the same victim, occurred on July 17, 2013, at approximately 3:20 a.m. in the 5100 block of Terrace M.

Investigators received information from the victim robberies that the suspect was the person involved. The victim also stated that the suspect was a Birmingham Police officer. During the course of the investigation, detectives discovered additional evidence that supported the victim’s claim and aided detectives in obtaining warrants for the suspect’s arrest. The investigation also revealed that the suspect was off duty at the time of the robberies.

The suspect has been identified as: T’Derek Luster, B/M, 27, of Birmingham, Alabama. Two Robbery 1st Degree warrants, each with $250,000.00 bond, have been obtained against the suspect. Two Ethics Violation warrants, each with $250,000.00 bond, have been obtained against the suspect.

Chief A.C. Roper states, “We are extremely disappointed by the actions of this former officer. As the leader of this department, I will not tolerate this illegal behavior by any of our personnel. Luster betrayed the public trust which is critical to successful police community relations. I appreciate the fact that the victim recognized this illegal behavior would not be tolerated by the Birmingham Police Department, so he trusted us to investigate and bring this suspect to justice. I am thankful the vast majority of our personnel work diligently to make Birmingham a safer city but where there is crime and corruption, we will root it out regardless of where it leads.”

Prior to his arrest, Luster submitted his letter of resignation to the Birmingham Police Department.

The suspect is in the custody of the Jefferson County Jail.

A photo of the suspect may be obtained at the B.P.D. Headquarters, located at 1710 1st Avenue North.
