Officer from Acornhoek caught with drugs

A 35 year old detective attached to the Acornhoek Police Station was arrested at the Kruger National Park for allegations of being in possession of dagga.

The member was arrested yesterday at around 16:00, soon after entering the park. The park’s Protection Services stopped and searched his vehicle when they reportedly found the dagga and called members of the SAPS who then arrested him.

The suspect, Arthur Ngobeni, appeared at the Bushbuckridge Magistrate’s Court today where he was released on warning. The case was remanded to August 18.

The Provincial Commissioner of the police in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma has since applauded the park’s Protection Services for the fearless action they took by not being intimidated when carrying out their duties. He also indicated that members who are found committing crime will be identified, isolated and dealt with accordingly. “As members of the SAPS we need to ensure that our actions are beyond reproach at all times,” he concluded.
