Rats in the ranks, a lot of Victoria Police corporation employees will be quite uneasy for some time.
An unknown quantity of internal data has compromised, 10,000 hard copies have been discovered at a methamphetamine (ICE) lab with connections to a serving officer of Victoria Police Corporation and organized crime.
Ice is also know as shard, crank, crystal, crystal meth, meth, P, (pure) Methamphetamine.
It’s likely that home address and other personal details of police officers are in unknown hands right now.
This really brings into question the integrity of Victoria Police Corporation to monitor crime within their own organization and protect the sensitive data that they acquire and store.
For the employees of Victoria Police corporation who are breaking out in a cold sweat right now I can only offer the following comforting images.
Did the herald sun (part of news corp) hack a mobile phone to get this story?
EXCLUSIVE: A ROGUE cop at the centre of Victoria Police’s leaks scandal was running a large-scale drug operation from his home, where thousands of sensitive police documents were found, a court has heard.
The Herald Sun can reveal drugs, scales, drug-making equipment, ID cards and a sawn-off shotgun were allegedly seized from the senior constable’s Epping home after it was raided in April.
Details of the allegations levelled at the officer were aired during a Melbourne Magistrates’ Court bail hearing for a co-accused, Dean Murphy.
Police claim the officer is a “significant drug dealer” who, with two civilians, was behind an amphetamine operation that netted more than $300,000.
The officer, who has not been named, was suspended without pay after police discovered more than 10,000 pages at his home.
Police allege the documents were printouts from the force’s database and other police systems, and put lives of police and members of the public at risk.
Documents were also allegedly found at two other properties; at least one document was linked to bikie gangs.
The officer had been monitored closely in the lead-up to the raid on his home, the court heard.
Detective Sergeant Anthony Reyntjes told the court Mr Murphy, 38, was at the police officer’s home when it was raided and he was subsequently arrested.
He has been charged with perverting the course of justice and trafficking a commercial quantity of a drug.
Police allegedly discovered a cache of weapons, power tools, stolen goods and laptop computers during a search of a Seddon warehouse used by Mr Murphy.
Exercise books believed to contain details of drug transactions were also seized.
Police alleged Mr Murphy and the officer were operating the drug business together and claimed some of the leaked police files provided sensitive details of “clients” who owed the enterprise money.
The court heard the officer pretended to execute a warrant on a third co-accused who remains at large.
Mr Murphy, a father of two, was bailed to return to court in October.
