share close

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

PC Chris Dwyer is accused of breaching West Yorkshire Police’s professional standards in regard to integrity, honesty and discreditable conduct over the alleged incident at Halifax police station in January.

West Yorkshire Police said that another officer attended the station’s canteen and emptied the charity tuck shop cash tin at around 10pm on 21 January.

The officer left six 10p coins and two 20p coins as a float.

It is then alleged that around 10.30pm, PC Dwyer went to the tuck shop, removed two packets of Jaffa Cakes which were priced at 50p each, and didn’t have enough money to pay for them.

The cash tin was later checked and was found to contain the same amount of money but with an extra two 5p coins.

It is alleged PC Dwyer failed to pay in full for the items and provided dishonest accounts when questioned about the matter.

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

Punishments for misconduct can include verbal or written warnings, suspension, demotion, or in serious cases, transfer and dismissal.
