£2000 stolen from police station

From the Leicester Mercury:

Police seized £2,000 from a suspect they were investigating – only for it to be stolen from the station where it was being stored.

The crime came to light as a result of a Freedom of Information Act inquiry by the Leicester Mercury. Nobody has been arrested.

Police said the theft showed the force was not "immune" to crime and said that storage procedures had been "reviewed".

They have refused to name the station concerned. However, the Mercury understands it was Hinckley Road station, in Leicester's West End.
