Johannesburg - Two police constables from the Boksburg North police station were arrested on Friday on charges of corruption, police said.

Police spokesperson Katlego Mogale said the Organised Crime Unit in Germiston received information that officers at the Boksburg North Visible Policing Unit were extorting money from drug dealers.

"It is alleged that members of Organised Crime Germiston conducted an operation in Boksburg North after receiving information," she said.

"Money was handed over to the suspects and they fled the scene in a marked police vehicle that they were on duty with. After a short chase, they threw some of the exhibits out the window."

She said they were caught and some of the trap-money was found in the police car.

The constables would appear in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
