Four Police officers from the Pretoria Central Police Station have been arrested over the robbery of foreigners.
Hawks Spokesperson, Colonel Katlego Mogale accused the officers of leaving their posts to go and engage in criminal activities. The revelation also stated that the officers followed their targets in Brooklyn and robbed them at the centre of the city.
“The members would then stop and search them [and] take their belongings. [Wednesday] night seems to have been no different, and the suspects embarked on their illegal activity. Unbeknown to them they too were under surveillance by law-abiding members of a multi-disciplinary team,” said Mogale.
The officers were accused of committing a robbery at Fountains Circle according to investigations by the investigative multi-disciplinary team.
Six officers engaged in the robbery with two of them fleeing on foot.
The officers have been charged with robbery, possession of suspected stolen property and defeating the ends of justice, according to the Hawks.
