Two police officers attached to the Loate detective services, north of Pretoria, were arrested yesterday after an investigation by the Gauteng Hawks, Captain Katlego Mogale said.

She said investigators searched two homes late on Tuesday night and early yesterday morning, and found 126 dockets and 12 evidence kits in a tool box outside one of the homes.

“The investigators received information regarding the dockets which were being kept by the members at their respective residences.”

Two female warrant officers, aged 40 and 41, were subsequently arrested.

“Investigations are continuing and we are not ruling out the possibility of more arrests being made,” Mogale said.

The officers would appear in court on soon on charges of defeating the ends of justice.
