WHAT A DONUT: Cop Sacked Over ‘Mistaking Carrots For Donuts’

PC Simon Read, an officer for Cambridgeshire Police, was sacked today after he told a misconduct hearing that he scanned a barcode for carrots worth 7p instead of the £9.95 Krispy Kreme donuts he brought by mistake. 

Read, who said he was buying the donuts for colleagues, said that he had made an “honest mistake”. He said that he had not intended to steal them and was “absolutely horrified” at the situation he found himself in. Horrified and you would imagine very embarrassed too.

He said:

“I simply scanned where I believed the barcodes were and placed them down (in the bagging area).”

The tray of 12 doughnuts was part of a lunch run which included, the carrots, a sandwich, and a drink. It should have cost about £14 and Read ended up paying about £4. However, Read was in uniform at the time and was dragged before the hearing which took place in Peterborough.

Chairwomen of the disciplinary panel, Sharmistha Michaels, was unconvinced:

“On the balance of probabilities, we are satisfied that PC Read did intentionally scan the wrong barcode.”

The hearing was shown CCTV footage of Read checking the screen at the Tesco Extra self-service till where the incident took place and concluded that Read had several opportunities to correct the mistake. He was therefore dismissed immediately for breaching professional standards of honesty and integrity.
