A force spokesman said a female officer had emptied the charity shop cash tin at around 10pm on January 21 and left a £1 float in change.

Half an hour later, PC Dwyer allegedly took two packets of Jaffa Cakes, priced at 50p each and did not leave any money.

A spokesman said: ‘The cash tin was checked and it was found to contain the same denominations of coins in the cash tin but with an extra 2 x 5p coins.

‘It is alleged that PC Dwyer failed to make appropriate payment for the items and provided dishonest accounts when questioned about the matter. 

The misconduct hearing is due to take place from October 11 to 14.
