So, what do we think led to this mans arrest? Did he fail to alert authorities to something going on with one of the trucks he directed? Did the lads on the lorry find a body, and he covered it up somehow? How, precisely, is he supposed to have perverted the course of justice from his dispatch office? And furthermore, why would he have done that, given that he is apparently a special constable? Surely he should have known better than that?

credible - given that bin tare values and reported loads were cited as conclusive evidence that they guy COULD NOT have been in a bin
A bin lorry at the centre of the investigation into missing RAF airman Corrie Mckeague was carrying a significantly heavier load than first thought, police have said. Mr Mckeague disappeared in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on 24 September. Police believed the lorry which picked up bins near where he was last seen was carrying 11kg (1st 10lb), but now know it was more than 100kg (15st 10lb). A man arrested in connection with the investigation faces no further action. A search of a landfill site in Cambridgeshire started on Monday.
A 26-year-old man arrested on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice as part of the continuing Corrie McKeague missing person investigation has been told he will face no further action. The 26-year-old was arrested on Wednesday 1 March and interviewed about information provided to the investigation before being bailed. However, after more work by detectives, he has now been told he will face no further action. Police have been carrying out extensive work to check and re-check data provided to officers. As a result of this comprehensive checking process and analysis it was discovered that the initial weight of the waste pick-up supplied to the investigation was incorrect and that it was far higher than originally thought. This directly led to the arrest as police moved to secure any potential evidence however, following further work and the interviewing of a second man under caution, detectives now believe there was no attempt to hide information. Detective Superintendent Katie Elliott said; "Through the persistence of officers and their detailed work we recently identified that the data provided was incorrect. We now know the weight of the waste collection from the ‘horseshoe’ on the night Corrie went missing was over 100kg, when the original information we were given indicated that this was 11kg, and this makes our search of the landfill the next logical step to try to find Corrie. “The investigation has identified that the company who provided the data usually charge per collection, not per weight of load collected, and it appears that it was genuinely believed by the company that the data provided was correct. There was no intention to mislead the investigation, however our discovery, through persisting with this through our enquiries and evidence gathering, now puts a new emphasis on the search. “Corrie’s family have been made aware of this new information and we continue to liaise with them as we move forward. “Our extensive work around CCTV to see if Corrie could have left the Brentgovel Street area and the vast number of other enquiries we have been making have been crucial to getting us to this point. “We have had to be methodical and systematic in our approach to ensure we were not ruling out the line of enquiry that may give us the answers. The search of the landfill is a huge undertaking, and still may not provide the answer as to what happened, but now, with new information uncovered by the officers working on the case, this is the priority.
