Default Policeman caught stealing jaffa cakes



A police officer is to face a misconduct hearing after being accused of taking Jaffa Cakes from a charity tuck shop without paying.

PC Chris Dwyer is alleged to have taken the items from the canteen at Halifax police station in January.

The officer is accused of breaching West Yorkshire Police's professional standards in regard to integrity, honesty and discreditable conduct.

The hearing is due to take place between 11 and 14 October.

West Yorkshire Police said another officer had emptied the police station's charity tuck shop cash tin at about 22:00 GMT on 21 January, leaving six 10p pieces and two 20p pieces in the tin as a float.

Later that evening, PC Dwyer is said to have visited the canteen and taken two packets of Jaffa cakes, priced at 50p each.

The cash tin was later checked and it contained the same amount of money as earlier plus an extra two 5p coins.

PC Dwyer is accused of failing to make appropriate payment for the items and also providing dishonest accounts when questioned about the matter.

Punishments for misconduct include verbal or written warnings, suspension, demotion or transfer and dismissal.

Why would you give a dishonest account of what happened?

You'd just say "sorry, my mistake" and pay them. You could even make a little donation. I'd have just bought 10 boxes of Jaffa cakes and said "you can have them."

A police constable who took two packets of Jaffa Cakes from a charity stall without paying full price has been sacked from West Yorkshire Police.

PC Chris Dwyer paid just 10p for two packets of the snacks from Halifax police station's canteen instead of the correct amount of £1.

The 51-year-old also tried to "change and embellish" his story when quizzed about it, a misconduct hearing found.

He was found guilty of gross misconduct and given an instant dismissal.

The misconduct trial had heard the confectionery stall at Halifax police station - set up in aid of a charity trip to Uganda - sold crisps, chocolate and fizzy drinks priced at 50p each.

PC Dwyer went to the tuck shop on 21 January and after putting some money in the cash tin, removed two packets of Jaffa Cakes, the panel heard.

They had no issue employing dangerous perverts, but don't you dare take a jaffa cake without paying
