Johannesburg - Two police officers appeared in the Kriel Magistrate’s Court on Friday on charges of conspiracy to commit crash-in-transit heists, the Hawks said.

Constables Tami Kubeka, 38, and Daniel Mahlangu, 30, were arrested in their homes on Friday morning, Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

One of the men tried to fire at the officers, but was overpowered.

Their case was postponed to September 16. They will remain in custody.

The two are accused of being part of a larger group conspiring to execute cash-in-transit robberies in Mpumalanga.

Firearms, suspected stolen laptops, cellphones, and two BMWs were recovered.
