Tshwane Metro Police officers had to arrest two of their colleagues, accused of the possession of a stolen vehicle, as well as one more suspect.
The arrests were made as a result of a joint investigation led by TMPD and SAPS that started at the end of February. Reports stated that policemen initially received information about a car, stolen on 22nd of February in Eldoraigne, Centurion. This Monday, they made significant progress and found a place, where the car was holding.
“The vehicle was found on the premises and one suspect, a female TMPD constable, was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle. Upon further questioning and investigation, two more suspects linked to the crime were pursued and arrested in Atteridgeville, one of them being a TMPD trainee who is married to the female constable,” TMPD spokesperson Isaac Mahamba said, adding that both accused would soon appear in court.
Upon closer inspection police also found that the car was affixed with false registration plates and licence disc.
