Johannesburg - Three stolen vehicles were found at the home of a police officer in Eldorado Park, Gauteng police said on Tuesday.

The vehicles, a Volkswagen Golf 6 and two Volkswagen Polos, were discovered around 09:00, police spokesperson Katlego Mogale said.

The officer was not home at the time.

He would face charges of possession of suspected stolen property upon his arrest, Mogale said.

The provincial flying squad team had followed a signal which led them to the officer's home in Alley Street, Eldorado Park.

"It is alleged that when the members knocked and screamed for the gate to be opened, no one answered. They proceeded to take the gate off the rail and gained entrance."

Mogale said the Golf 6 had been chopped up. It was reported hijacked in Dawn Park in the East Rand last month.

The other two Polos had their chassis numbers tampered with, Mogale said.
