Sergeant stole money from husband's credit card
By UK CreditCards.com
A police officer from Staffordshire stands accused of stealing over £9,000 from the credit card of her husband, it was confirmed February 8.
Sgt Carmen Hall appeared in court last week to deny two charges of fraud and a separate charge of perverting the course of justice.
The 40-year-old allegedly transferred £4,976 and £4,300 from the credit card of husband Mark Jones, who works as a police constable, in two transactions in May 2007.
"Sgt Carmen Hall appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court in October 2009 after she was summonsed for an alleged offence of fraud," read a statement from Staffordshire Police.
"The case was adjourned until February 2nd at the same court. She denies both charges and will appear at Birmingham Crown Court in March."
Ms Hall, who denies all the charges, is currently working for Staffordshire Police in a non-operational capacity at Tamworth police station.
