PC denies charge of fraud from charity fund
A police officer yesterday denied defrauding his force's widows and orphans fund.
PC Darren Copp, who serves with Devon and Cornwall Police, allegedly claimed he had no access to a car, when in fact he did, in order to buy a new vehicle. The charity fund provides financial aid to serving or retired officers and dependants who are in need.
Copp, 36, appeared at Taunton Crown Court, Somerset, and pleaded not guilty to one charge of fraud by false representation.
The court heard Copp, of Torridge Road, Plymouth, submitted the claim between October 2 and October 13, 2011.
