A police officer has been sentenced after admitting abusing computer systems to pocket lost cash that had been handed in.
Leicestershire Police said 54-year-old property officer Julie Treen had registered cash as having been collected by the owners but actually kept it herself.
Her offending came to light in 2015 when discrepancies were spotted on the system by the force.
Treen, of Ridleys Close, Leicester, admitted theft at Leicester Crown Court and was given a two-year sentence, suspended for two years.
She was also fined £10,000 and ordered to pay £9,360 compensation to the force along with £3,500 court costs and a £100 victim surcharge.
Leicestershire Police said disciplinary action would now be taken against Treen following the conclusion of the case.
