Police officers charged with theft

Hillingdon Times: Two police officers are to appear in court next month accused of theft Two police officers are to appear in court next month accused of theft

Two police officers have been charged with theft.

The pair, who are aged 43 and 45 and serve with South Wales Police, are due to appear in court next month.

"South Wales Police have charged two men, aged 45 and 43, with theft," a force spokesman said.

"Both men are serving officers with South Wales Police and were arrested following an investigation by the professional standards department.

"The men are due to appear at Cardiff Magistrates' Court on April 17.

"The Independent Police Complaints Commission has been notified of the investigation."

The force has not revealed the rank of the officers or the circumstances of the allegations.

News of the arrests comes in the same week as two officers were sacked for gross misconduct in an unrelated case where they failed to investigate allegations of sexual assault against a CID colleague.

Detective Inspector Phillip Camm and Detective Sergeant Richard Jones were sacked after being found guilty of gross misconduct over the way they dealt with allegations of sexual assault against fellow officer Jeffrey Davies.

In August last year former detective Davies was jailed for three years at Swansea Crown Court for using his role as a force family liaison officer to sexually assault two vulnerable women while on duty.
