A former employee of Cumbria Constabulary from Wigton has been sentenced for two counts of Fraud by False Representation, and three counts of Theft by Employee.
Melvin McFadden, aged 58, was sentenced to 84 days, suspended for 12 months, at Kendal Magistrates Court after pleading guilty to all the offences.
McFadden was employed by Cumbria Constabulary at the time of the offences as a Front Counter Clerk, a civilian staff member.
He was arrested on 24th November 2014, following an investigation into fraudulent vouchers that were used in a supermarket.
These vouchers had been originally seized by an officer in relation to a criminal investigation, and had been placed in the property store at Carlisle Police Station.
Mr McFadden was responsible for destroying these vouchers, but instead stole them and used them to pay for fuel. Further gift vouchers and other stolen items were found at his home address, some of which he had previously claimed to have destroyed.
The Constabulary have invited anyone with concerns about a police employee to contact the police on 101.
