Police Officer Could Be Dismissed For 'Swapping Barcode' On Krispy Kreme Box

Police Officer Could Be Dismissed For 'Swapping Barcode' On Krispy Kreme Box

A police officer is facing dismissal after being accused of trying to buy a box of doughnuts costing £9.95 for just 7p after swapping the barcode.

PC Simon Read, of Cambridgeshire Police, reportedly stuck a priced ticket for some carrots on the box and attempted to pay for them.

According to case documents, on 10 February, the officer went to a Tesco Extra while in his full uniform and picked up a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

He is then said to have gone over to the fruit and veg area and used a set of self-service scales to print a barcode sticker for carrots, costing 7p.

He now stands accused of acting dishonestly and without integrity.

The preliminary reports states that the alleged breach is 'so serious that dismissal would be justified'.

The documents say that PC Read faces two charges:

  • Honesty & Integrity: "On February 10, 2020 you breached the Standard of Professional Behaviour concerning Honesty & Integrity because you acted dishonestly and without integrity by knowingly paying £0.07 for 12 donuts when you knew that you should have paid £9.95."
  • Discreditable Conduct: "Your behaviour on February 10, 2020 brings discredit upon the police service and undermines confidence in it because a reasonable member of the public, aware of all the facts, would be justifiably appalled that a police officer had acted dishonestly and without integrity."

Man Spits At Police Officer 24 Times As They Help Him Into Ambulance

published at6 days ago

Last year, a female detective was sacked for farting and using foul language while on duty.

Forty-four-year-old Detective Constable Claire Fitzpatrick repeatedly used the word 'c***' while working; she also asked a junior member of staff if he wanted an affair with a 'fatter, ugly, older woman' and asked a female colleague if she had any 'cream for thrush' while in the station.

She was pulled up before a disciplinary hearing where she admitted to farting outside a sergeant's office but maintained that she didn't do it deliberately. She told the hearing her bad language was just part of a 'culture of banter' at the station.

The mum-of-two said: "I would joke about it. Sometimes I would speak like the character Borat or use a silly voice to say: 'Rather out than in'."

She was accused of a whopping 25 counts of inappropriate behaviour, which amounted to gross misconduct. She was dismissed from the Gwent Police Force where she'd worked for 22 years.
