A POLICE officer stationed in the Eastern Cape was arrested in Marburg on Sunday for driving a stolen car.

SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid said the officer, a constable, had a male passenger with him and the car, a maroon Toyota Verso, was stolen from Durban earlier this year.

The car also had false number plates and the ignition had been tampered with.

“Both were arrested and will appear in a Durban court for theft of a motor vehicle,” said Wiid.

Ugu Cluster Commander Major-General Sethenya Nxamagele thanked members from private companies and members of the public for working hand-in-hand to combat crime.
