Johannesburg - A police officer will appear in the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate's Court on Wednesday after he was found driving an allegedly stolen bakkie, Gauteng traffic police said.

The 40-year-old warrant officer, who is based at the OR Tambo police station in Kempton Park, on the East Rand, was arrested at a roadside checkpoint in Bapsfontein on Tuesday, spokesman Obed Sibasa said.

He was travelling from Daveyton to Kempton Park. The officer was charged with theft of a motor vehicle. The case would be transferred to the vehicle investigation unit in Pretoria West for further investigation.

“Gauteng traffic police will not hesitate to arrest, irrespective of who you are, your social standing, religious or political affiliation,” Sibasa said. - Sapa
