Cape Town - A Maitland policeman arrested for corruption has been suspended, Western Cape police said on Friday.

The detective sergeant appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday after being arrested by the police’s Anti-Corruption Unit at 07:30 that morning, police spokesperson Constable Noloyiso Rwexana confirmed.

“According to information, the police officer was investigating a case involving two suspects. There was no evidence linking the two to the crime and they were supposed to be released without being charged,” she said.

“The police official [however] demanded an amount of R4 000, which he claimed was bail money.”

The 32-year-old officer was released on R1 000 bail and the case was postponed to October 9 for a regional court date.
