Evesham Editorial 10th Mar, 2023   0

A FORMER member of West Mercia Police staff has been sentenced at Worcester Crown Court.

Lucy Tull, 25, who was based in the force’s Operations Command Centre (OCC), was sentenced to 20 months suspended for two years during a hearing yesterday (Thursday). She was also ordered to do 120 hours unpaid work.

Tull pleaded guilty on February 9 to fraud, supplying a class a drug, supplying a class B drug and supplying a psychoactive substance at Worcester Magistrates Court.

The offences took place between 1 January 2019 and 4 December 2020, in Newent, Gloucestershire.




Deputy Chief Cons Alex Murray said: “We expect the highest of standards from our workforce whether they are a police officer or a member of police staff and will not hesitate to investigate criminal offences that come to light as we would with any member of the public.”

Even though she has since resigned from the force, Tull will still be subject to internal misconduct proceedings.
