West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) has suspended Edge while investigating the allegations.
Eighteen years of paramedics have strongly denied cheating and believe that internal investigations will reveal his name.
One source told The Sun: “We are all waiting for the results of our investigation.
“Steve is categorically doing nothing wrong and the truth will disappear.
“I heard rumors that his stationmaster marked himself positive with a pencil and started the investigation, but nothing has been proven yet.
“Given the tensions we all receive as a service, we are incredibly selfish and seriously hope not.”
The edge was interrupted earlier this month as the NHS processed the height of the third wave.

WMAS experienced the busiest day on record on January 4, with 4,383 calls in 24 hours. The previous high in March 2018 was 4,001 calls.
