Scotland Yard reportedly spent more than £5,000 on disciplinary procedures after a policeman was accused of stealing a tin of biscuits. PC Hooper was accused of taking biscuits from a tin which belonged to his colleague. The policeman said that he had intended to share them and offered to replace the tin. After a three-day disciplinary hearing and 7 months on restricted duties, the panel found the officer had no case to answer.
