Johannesburg - Two police officers accused of theft and unlawful possession of ammunition appeared in the Mount Frere Magistrate's Court, the Eastern Cape human settlements, safety, and liaison department said on Tuesday.
They appeared on Monday and the case was postponed to Thursday for a bail application, spokesman Lwandile Sicwetsha said.
The two officers would remain in custody until their next appearance.
Sicwetsha said the officers were arrested on Thursday last week near a police van loaded with 10 bags of dagga.
This was after an investigation regarding the theft of dagga at the Mount Frere police station.
“One of the officers was found in possession of ammunition,” Sicwetsha said.
Human settlements, safety, and liaison MEC Helen Sauls-August welcomed their arrest.
She commended police for helping root out corruption. - Sapa
