Parow Police have again been stained by the arrest of an officer on charges of corruption, dealing in drugs, possession of drugs and possession of stolen property.
The 34-year-old officer was arrested at his house last week Wednesday and already appeared in court.
He was released on R5000 bail and pending investigation the case will continue on 30 September.
His arrest follows various similar incidents in the province after Western Cape Police conducted crime intelligence driven operations last week.
These operations focused on alleged corrupt relations between police officers and other individuals in society.
Says provincial police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk: “After extensive investigations, three members were arrested during the past week. The other two are from Strand and Macassar. More arrests of members are imminent”.
“The management in the Western Cape has vowed to root out criminal elements within its ranks and we trust that these arrest will send a strong message to other would-be criminals within the police.”
Crime Stop at 08600 10111. Any information will be treated confidentially.
