In January, two packets of cake were allegedly taken from the canteen of the Halifax police station.

PC Chris Dwyer is accused of violating West Yorkshire Police professional standards and is due for hearing next week on 11 and 14 October.


West Yorkshire Police said another officer had emptied the police station’s charity tuck shop cash tin at 10 p.m. on 21 January, leaving six 80p as a float in the tin, BBC told.

Thereafter, PC Dwyer visited the canteen and had a Jaffa cake, which cost 50 paise per piece.

Upon subsequent inspection, the same amount was found in the float, plus two additional 5p coins.

PC Dwyer is accused of failing to make reasonable payments for the goods. When asked about the matter, he is also accused of giving dishonest accounts.

His punishment may come in the form of verbal or written warning, suspension, relegation or transfer and dismissal.
