Former Joburg policeman arrested for renting out police uniforms to criminals
A former member of the South African Police Services (SAPS) was arrested in Soweto, south-west of Johannesburg, on Friday morning after it was discovered that he was renting out police uniforms to criminals.
"We found police uniforms, blue lights, reflectors, name tags... these were used to commit crimes," said Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela.
"The man was renting these things to criminals."
The 35 year-old was arrested after police raided a house in Moletsane. Authorities suspect that the former cop was also involved in some of the criminal acts carried out by his customers.
"It seems that after the criminals have done their jobs they would share their loot with him," said Makhubela
The man is expected to appear in court soon.
