At the time I was written off work for depression and when in the police station I was very scared and too embarrass to involve anyone else.
I have never in my life stolen anything and would have never gone into the shop and stolen the cover. As far as I am concerned I had just found it. I did not know that the item had been stolen I thought someone had dropped it.
I did sign a document accepting a caution but I would not have signed it if it had stated that I was being cautioned for theft.
From the point of my statement it states that I found the cover.
Yes I think I must have done, I do recall signing something.
Yes if possible or at least have it changed to theft by finding.
Thank you for the information. Today I did contact the DBS to have the information changed or removed and the DBS office said that they can not change or remove it and that I must contact my local police station and speak to the data protection department.
