Two coppers nicked in uniforms-on-eBay probe

Going, going, gone

Application security programs and practises

Two Welsh police officers have been arrested and suspended for allegedly flogging police property on eBay.

The two - a 31-year-old man and 27-year-old woman - were arrested earlier this month. The two are accused of selling police property through the auction site. Police took computers and a small amount of cannabis from the house the two share.

The two officers are suspended while the investigation continues.

A "force insider" told the Mirror: "It is a serious matter - all officers are warned that police clothing should never be sold or even given away because it can get in the wrong hands. They were using nicknames to trade on eBay so it took a lot of detective work to trace them."

The items involved have now been removed from eBay, but there are still various bits of police kit available - prices for police helmets start at £5. ®
