Cop gang suspect held

Pretoria - A former policeman has been arrested in Ga-Rankuwa, after he was found with items of police uniform and ammo.

National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega said: “The use of police equipment by criminals masquerading as police contributes to the poor perceptions communities have of the police. The arrest and recovery of the cloned vehicle is significant.”

 

Phiyega said in a joint operation between the Hawks and the national intervention unit police recovered items including ammunition, a substantial amount of money, a police blue light, several items of police uniform, and sergeant and inspector rank insignia.

Hawks spokesman Captain Paul Ramaloko said: “The former Klipgat police station sergeant was charged with house robbery, which led to his dismissal from the police in 2010. We suspect he is part of a gang that impersonated police and preyed on unsuspecting people in Pretoria and surrounding areas.”
