New York Cop Picks Up Hooker; She Steals His Firearm and Vehicle…

An off-duty cop is in hot water after picking up a prostitute in Brooklyn and leaving her in his still-running car — his service weapon on the front seat — while he stopped to get cash for their rendezvous, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The hooker allegedly saw a golden opportunity when Officer Ali Sheppard got out of his 2015 Jeep Wrangler to hit the ATM, just after midnight Tuesday — she got behind the wheel and drove off, the sources said.

And while police have since caught the lady of the night and recovered Sheppard’s vehicle, the lusty lawman’s Smith & Wesson pistol is still in the wind, sources say.

Even Sheppard’s father couldn’t believe his 38-year-old son — a US Army vet who has been a cop the last 13 years — could be such a bonehead.

“You’ve got to be f–ing kidding me,” stunned dad Eugene Sheppard said from his home in Brownsville that he shares with his cop son.

“I’m in total shock. I would never have thought this. The man has been in the service twice. I’ve never heard that he would pick up a prostitute.”

Sheppard, who works at Brooklyn’s 76th Precinct, allegedly hired Taquanna Lawton — known as “Unique” — at Liberty Avenue and Sackman Street in Brownsville around 12:15 a.m. Tuesday, sources say.

They were headed to a motel in East New York, but Sheppard made a quick pit stop to withdraw cash from an ATM at the Imperial Hotel, sources say.

That’s when Lawton, 20, allegedly jumped in the driver’s seat and drove off, with the firearm on the front seat.

She was hauled back to the 75th Precinct in East New York and charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property, according to police.

Sheppard — who pulled down $105,819 last year, including overtime, according to SeeThruNY — is now in hot water, police said Wednesday.

“He was immediately suspended and he’ll be facing some disciplinary action,” NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said at an unrelated press conference. “We’re working on the investigation.”
