Johannesburg - A policeman has been arrested for accepting a bribe from a man he was investigating at a Meyerton taxi rank, Gauteng police said on Tuesday.

His arrest came after someone laid a charge against him on Monday, said Captain Shado Mashobane.

"Police set up a trap and urged the complainant to continue with a transaction he had with the officer."

Mashobane said the policeman was arrested shortly after accepting money from the complainant.

"An amount of R 4900 was found at the scene where the arrest was made."

The officer was expected to appear in the Vereeniging Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
