Johannesburg - Two men accused of impersonating police officers and hijacking a truck have been arrested in Centurion, Pretoria, the Ekurhuleni metro police department (EMPD) said on Tuesday.

They were found in possession of a radio signal jamming device, and an EMPD uniform was discovered in the truck, when they were arrested on Monday, spokesperson chief superintendent Wilfred Kgasago said.

"A truck transporting electrical appliances was hijacked on Monday morning in Centurion and it was discovered four hours later in Midrand," he said.

Police were investigating how the men, in their 30s, got hold of the uniform.
