An Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department (EMPD) officer and a suspected accomplice have appeared in court charged with robbing a truck that was transporting masks.

The officer, who is stationed in Kempton Park, and the other man appeared at the Boksburg magistrate's court on Monday on charges of robbery with aggravating circumstances, two counts of kidnapping, possession of an unlicensed firearm and defeating the ends of justice.

“The allegations are that, on May 14 2020 [the officer] was driving an official EMPD vehicle when he stopped a truck that was transporting masks. He instructed the driver to alight from the truck, pointed a firearm at him and forced him into another vehicle that was parked behind the EMPD vehicle, driven by accused two.

Anyone surprised? Hmmm yeah didn't think so. Really sad state of affairs when that is the case.

And they want to do away with firearm ownership for self defence for law abiding citizens, when we have authorities acting like this.... :rolleyes:
