Crime

A robber who dressed as a real policeman, after stealing a firearm and uniform, has been arrested, North West police said on Tuesday.

Police spokeswoman Captain Aafie Botma said that towards the end of December, a policeman was robbed of his uniforms and firearm at his Ikageng home outside of Potchefstroom.

Members of the public then reported that there was an imposter seen several times wearing a police uniform.

On the last day of 2012, the fake cop, aged 28, was arrested.

“He was found with two sets of police uniforms and a firearm,” said Botma.

The man will appear in court on Wednesday. - Sapa
