Cape Town - Two members of the recently established, much vaunted Anti-Gang Unit have been arrested by their fellow members.
The arrests follow an investigation into a complaint of theft, which is believed to have occurred during a raid in Mitchells Plain.
"Detectives from the AGU arrested two police officers from the same Unit for theft this (Tuesday) morning. The arrests follow an investigation into a theft complaint after the Unit executed a raid in Mitchell’s Plain recently," police spokesperson FC van Wyk said.
Western Cape police commissioner Khombinkosi Jula said SAPS would not allow any form of corruption to "seep into the Unit members".
"No SAPS member is above the law," Jula said, "and we will not allow any of our members to perpetrate a crime and get away with it.
