Investigators will be looking into whether or not the IT worker was acting alone and are prepared to fire a suspected accomplice. 

A Polish Bitcoin-mining ring took the idea of hiding in plain sight to a new level when it was discovered to be operating within police headquarters. Warsaw police said that the operation was discovered “quite quickly” and that the employee had been fired and charges are being brought against them. According to local news outlet Gazeta Wyborcza, the person at the center of this scandal is not a police officer but rather, a civilian working in the IT department of the police station. The local report also adds that the news was revealed via the TVN24 portal, which “cites unofficial information confirmed in two sources.” The portal revealed that an IT worker at the station was found to be stealing electricity from the station to mine crypto. No actual connection was made to the police network the department claims.
