PC Nicola Elston, 28, a serving Metropolitan Police officer attached to Lambeth borough, was found guilty today following a three-day trial at Southwark Crown Court.
The jury found her guilty of making off without payment of a taxi fare in Croydon on June 27, but not guilty of assault. She had pleaded not guilty to both offences.
A Met spokesman said the officer remains restricted. “Now that the criminal proceedings have been completed we will be able to complete our misconduct process,” he said.
