A firearms officer stole lubricant sex gel from a shop after panicking about his partner's daughter seeing him.
Neil Bull, 37, was found guilty at the town's crown court, of stealing the gel and other items from Boots, on three separate occasions in 2010.
Bull, of London Road, Wollaston, admitted taking the gel, but denied theft as he planned to go back to pay.
Judge Richard Bray ordered him to pay fines and costs of £2,250 and told him his career was "inevitably over".

In my view a police officer who knowingly breaks the law is worse than a normal person doing it and should get a harsher sentence.

I want to know what happens to people that makes them so self-conscious, especially at the age of 37, that they'd commit a crime rather than be seen purchasing an "embarrassing" product.

A little harsh linking to his face-book I think, there's family in his images. Also we all make mistakes, not condoning what he did but I mean cummon !!
Stealing is Stealing, I agree with that and also he was a serving Police officer but hardly crime of the century. Look at the severity of this crime compared to certain other crimes committed by Police offices, pretty sure this one would be at the very bottom of the list.
Anyway, I get embarrassed when the need arises for such items
