Northern Ireland police officer accused of stealing cash

By Staff Reporter

A police officer is to stand trial on separate charges of perverting the course of justice and misconduct in public office.

One of the charges alleges abuse of trust whilst carrying out the role of a Family Liaison Officer.

Darren Albert Scott, with an address given as PSNI Omagh, is accused of stealing £200 cash on a date between October 29, 2014 and February 3, 2016. He is further accused of perverting the course of justice on December 31, 2014 by making a false statement in relation to an investigation of bribery.

Scott appeared before Omagh Magistrates Court for a committal hearing where he did not object to the proceedings.

Bail was set in the sum of £500 and Scott was ordered not attempt to see, speak to or in any other way contact the injured party or any witnesses in the cases.

He was remanded to appear for arraignment at Dungannon Crown Court later this month.
