Two charged after multi-agency probe
A COMO woman is one of two people charged as part of a multi-agency investigation conducted by WA Police, the Corruption and Crime Commission and the Department of Transport.
In January 2017 information obtained during a WA Police illicit drug operation, focused on the activities of a 28-year-old Dalyellup man, raised concerns about the activities of a 27-year-old woman employed by the Department of Transport.
It will be alleged the woman accessed information on the Department of Transport computer system and provided that information to the man.
On March 3, South-West Detectives executed a search warrant at a residence in Dalyellup and arrested the man.
At the same time staff from the Corruption and Crime Commission took the woman to their office to be interviewed.
The woman will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court on April 21 charged with unlawfully using a computer for benefit, acting corruptly in her performance or discharge of duties and disclosing official secrets.
