Johannesburg - A police constable was arrested on Tuesday for carjacking, Eastern Cape police said.

The 27-year-old man was on duty at Hlababomvu community service centre, near Port St Johns, when he was arrested, Captain Ernest Sigobe said.

His service pistol was confiscated by the police, as it could be evidence, he said.

A blue police light was confiscated from another suspect.

The Mount Ayliff cluster task team had been investigating a spate of carjackings in both Bizana and Mount Ayliff, said Sigobe.

Six men, aged between 25 and 28, were arrested in September, as a result of the investigation.

One of them had since died of natural causes, Sigobe said.

The constable and the other men faced three counts of carjacking, he said.

They would appear in the Bizana and Mount Ayliff magistrate's courts.

    I was hijacked. It changed my life forever. These men should be castrated and be thrown in a pit. They have no regard for life and they deserve no pity. Makes me sick.

    You are a disgrace to that uniform. Up until I read this article, I still thought that there should be at least 20 percent of the saps that are still good cops. You have now knocked that down to 18 percent. I feel for the hard working good cops out there. Its your names that's getting tarnished.
