hmv_1A British police officer was put to shame when he was caught on a store surveillance camera stealing video games by stuffing them behind his security vest.

The video depicts officer Peter Cokell browsing amongst the shelves of HMV, a popular video game retailer, and taking a few Ps3 games and stuffing them behind his police issued stab vest.

When asked of the crimes officer Cokell denied all charges stating “I tried my best to be inconspicuous to the general members of the pubic so that they would not form the wrong impression of what I may or may not have been trying to do with my trousers,” the judge, however, was not sold.

With clear video footage of officer Cokell taking the video games and leaving the store with them in tow, the judge found him guilty of the crime. Sentencing has not been issued yet but officer Cokell resigned from the Avon and Somerset police force in June when the official investigation into the theft began.

Mi5’s head, Jonathan Evens, has revealed that this past summer over 1,000 attacks were made on the computers in Whitehall, air traffic control, and power stations in London. The defense agency says that the teens are essential in the fight against cyber terrorists and they have already had much success.

People wondered for a moment whether the teens themselves could be considered a security risk because of the fact that they are so young. However, the defense agencies have stated that the teens have already signed a contract banning them from telling their parents or their girlfriends, friends, etc. about what they do in the Secret Service’s basement. The MI5 has already employed some 50 teens, most of Asian descent, to help track cyber crimes that reach as far as China, Peru, and even Russia. Reportedly, the teens have already uncovered hidden messages from terrorist leaders to members located in maximum security prisons.
