A Bloemfontein policewoman is at odds with the law for alle­gedly renting out her service gun to criminals for cash.

Constable Noxolo Job (34) allegedly rented out the service gun to criminals for money to pay her debts. Job from Rocklands is attached to the police’s VIP Protection Unit in Bloemfontein.

She faces charges of corruption and conspiracy to robbery with aggravating circumstances.

This follows her arrest on 8 October for allegedly accepting R30 000 as a bribe for the use of the 9 mm service pistol.

The state claims Job rented out her service firearm to a group of criminals so they could rob her colleagues of their firearms.

It emerged she had financial problems of thousands of rand.

She alle­gedly rented out a the pistol so she could get money to pay off her creditor.

Job was released on 23 October on bail of R5 000 with conditions attached following a successful application by her attorney Johan Vorster.

According to the conditions she may not have contact with state witnesses, including her colleagues; she may not come near the office where she works, and she may not return to the office of the VIP Protection Unit.

The state initially refused the bail application.

Her appearance in court follows a robbery at her unit’s office in Bloemfontein city centre earlier in October.

Job is expected to reappear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on 18 November.

Police allegedly used decoys posing as criminals and Job apparently told these which firearms were in the safe at her office. She was arrested after the “robbery”. Prosecutor Johan de Vries said at the pre-trial hearing that Job was caught in the trap.
