Officers were so outraged that a tin of biscuits vanished from their police station that they reported it as an official crime.
Details of the theft are still unclear but it is thought a police officer could be responsible for an inside job at the station at Heavitree Road in Exeter, Devon.
The biscuits were last seen in the control room kitchen.
The audacious crime at Devon and Cornwall Police’s headquarters, right under officers’ noses, was logged on February 28, 2012 – and remains officially unsolved.
It wasn’t me…I remember some officers ARRESTED for ‘nicking’ public order gear and using it…things went well for dps right up to the moment CPS said ‘err where is the intention to permanently deprive the owner (the police) ? And since the officers are using it in the service of the crown…how is that appropriatimg?
