Johannesburg - A Limpopo police station commissioner was arrested on Tuesday afternoon for possession of and dealing in ammunition, the Hawks said.

He was arrested while in a police meeting in Bela-Bela, Captain Paul Ramaloko said.

More than 500 rounds of ammunition were found at his house.

Earlier police arrested a couple believed to be the station commissioner's accomplices.

They were found with 10 500 rounds of ammunition in a Fiat Uno in Montana, Pretoria, and apparently on their way to the Kolonnade Mall to deliver them to a buyer.

The ammunition, some of it military-issue, and the car, were seized.

The 43-year-old captain, based in Rust de Winter, allegedly sold the 9mm and shotgun ammunition to criminals.

The three would appear in the Pretoria North Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Ramaloko said more arrests were expected.
