An investigation is underway into reports that some police vehicles were being used as delivery vans in Daveyton and Ekurhuleni, Gauteng police said on Tuesday.

“We are looking into the matter; we don't have the facts yet, except for those published in the Daily Sun,” said Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini.

The newspaper printed a reader-supplied photograph of goods being unloaded from a police car.

Residents claim it is common for businesses, particularly foreign businesses, to hire police cars for their deliveries.

One said: “The cops make extra money using police vehicles as delivery trucks, while the people have to pay for the vans and the cops' salaries”. -Sapa
