Ex-policeman in court over £13,000 theft charge

A retired police officer has been in court charged with stealing £113,000.

Paul Andrew Greaves, 54, from Carlton, Nottingham, was in the dock for an administrative hearing before Leamington magistrates at the Warwickshire Justice Centre, court staff said.

Greaves is alleged to have taken the cash from Warwickshire's old police headquarters at Leek Wootton.

The Warwickshire force said in March, 2012, that its anti-corruption unit was doing a criminal investigation after the cash went missing from a storage area.

The money, reported missing in September 2011, was seized after a police probe that ended in the conviction of three people for crimes including possession of firearms and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

He was bailed to appear back at the magistrates court on Monday, July 1.
