Cops arrested for theft
2011-05-31 12:28

Durban - Two Durban metro police officers and a police sergeant have been arrested for pocketing stolen wristwatches, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said two metro police officers confiscated 400 watches, worth about R3 000 each, from a 70-year-old Johannesburg man in a hotel in Umhlanga last week.

On the way to the Durban north police station, the two metro police officers each took 25 of the watches.

They handed in the rest, but the sergeant on duty at the police station also stole a few.

The Durban organised crime unit launched an investigation when the owner of the watches complained about the theft.

Mdunge said police arrested the two metro police on Monday afternoon. They found 25 of the watches in the home of one of the officers and 17 at the other's house.

The investigators the took the two to the Durban north police station, where they saw an on-duty sergeant wearing one of the watches and arrested him too.

They found 20 watches in a search of his house.

All three men were charged with theft and would appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Could have been a collector, a saleman or rep. It doesn't matter really. They were stolen by trusted members of the South African Police Department.

I am not sure corrupt cops are an ANC thing, if it helps you sleep at night then keep thinking it :D.
Sure, is the cops not an government establishment? The ANC are corrupt to the core, daily news events are the evidence to that, so why would the cops be any different, most of them are ex criminals employed as cops not?

The cops were also the ones doing the arresting here ... so if that reflects the government establishment then I guess our government is serious about rooting out corruption and and arresting corrupt officials.

I really hope and pray so, then they should start with Zuma, the whole cabinet and all their families and then the rest!
