A policewoman has appeared in court accused of leaking confidential information to her lover and helping a burglar.
It is claimed that Kelley Patton, 26, illegally distributed data from the police National Computer to at least two men including her boyfriend Soloman Henry.
The WPC, who was based in Brent, also acted as a 'lookout' for a burglar by listening in on her police radio as he broke into an internet cafe in Wembley, City of Westminster Magistrates' Court heard.
Patton is also accused of helping Henry, 25, obtain class C drugs.
Sally Walsh, prosecuting, told the court: '"The actual burglar, not Mr Henry, called up Ms Patton and asked her to keep a lookout for him on her police radio whilst he committed the burglary."
The intruder stole cash and phone cards worth £4,580 during the break-in at World Airways in Ealing Road, Wembley, on April 6 last year.
Patton, of Highbury, north London, faces three charges of misconduct and one of burglary between January 1 last year and June 3 this year.
Henry, from Holloway, is charged with receiving personal information under the Data Protection Act and aiding and abetting misconduct.
Patton and Henry spoke only to identify themselves during a short committal hearing today.
Judge Timothy Workman granted them unconditional bail to appear at Southwark Crown Court on January 2 next year.
Patton was arrested in June this year after a probe by officers from the Directorate of Professional Standards.
