Two police constables from Pampierstad were arrested after being found in possession of stolen items allegedly looted at a Hartswater furniture store.The two, aged 34 and 37, were found with cell phones looted during the Hartswater service delivery protest recently.They are still to appear in court, while the case has been handed over to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) for further investigation.According to Capt. Olebogeng Tawana, police spokesperson, the cell phones were among many other items reported stolen, such as television sets and electric appliances.Arrests were executed after police members of several units followed up on information implicating the suspects in criminal activities which emanated from the looting. Members of the crime intelligence unit, counter intelligence, the K9 unit, tactical response, public order policing and the Hartswater Police were involved.Tawana said the two suspects were also seen among the community members who looted business premises in Hartswater and Pampierstad.“The constables were arrested while they were on duty and did not expect it in the least to be arrested for looting and stealing the cell phones. One of the suspects was found with a stolen cell phone in his possession, while the other phone was found at the other suspect’s house,” Tawana said.More arrests are expected to follow. Efforts made by Express Northern Cape to get comment from Ipid were unsuccessful, as the Kimberley office claims to not be liable to comment. The phone of the national spokesperson, Moses Dlamini, went unanswered.
