A FINANCE officer at Derby's main police station stole £3,500 by writing cheques to himself.
Troy Martin took the money over a six-month period while working as resources manager at St Mary's Wharf police station in Derby.
Martin was arrested for the theft in January last year and was suspended from his job shortly afterwards. He resigned from Derbyshire police at the end of last year before misconduct proceedings had begun against him.
In March, he denied nine counts of theft, amounting to £5,375, but yesterday at Derby Crown Court, he finally admitted three of these charges, which were accepted by the prosecution.
My comment: Able to write cheques to himself...excellent financial control.
