Two South Wales Police officers have been jailed after being caught stealing in an undercover sting by their own force.
Det Sgt Stephen Phillips stole £250 cash and Det Con Jason Evans took two pens, Cardiff magistrates heard.
The pair were found out when colleagues staged a fake undercover operation at a house in Neath.
Evans, 44, from Cilfrew, was jailed for 12 weeks while Phillips, 45, from Skewen, received 22 weeks.
Both men face fast-track dismissal proceedings and are expected to lose their police pensions.
District Judge Bodfan Jenkins said: "The public expect and is entitled to expect the highest level of trust in police officers.
"Both of you fell seriously short of that expectation.
