Cop busted for robbing supermarket

2014-01-14 00:00

A POLICE constable accused of stealing meat and liquor from a supermarket at Dududu on the South Coast will make a formal bail application when he appears in court on January 20.

The police have since said the constable’s name is being withheld at this stage, as they suspect he did not work alone when BJ Trading Store, which houses a supermarket, butchery and a bottle store, was burgled during the night of January 10.

The constable has thus far been linked to another burglary in Park Rynie by the detectives from the Scottburgh Cluster Task Team that is investigating the case, police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane said.

The constable, attached to the Dududu SAPS, remains in custody after a brief appearance in the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

Constables Lungi Mseleku and Rodney Shozi of the Scottburgh SAPS acted on intelligence and arrested their police colleague at his Amandawe home on Saturday.
