DURBAN: Police officers at Durban Central SAPS arrested a 41-year-old man for possession of stolen property and impersonating a police official. He will be appearing at the Durban Magistrates’ Court today.

Yesterday, 14 June 2020, police were alerted to a highly intoxicated man in police uniform, conducting stop and searches on Victoria Street in the Durban CBD. Police officers immediately responded and approached the man. After questioning him, police discovered that he was not a police officer. He was found wearing a police bulletproof jacket and a police cap. He was searched and a fake appointment card as well as a wallet with the SAPS logo were recovered. He was immediately detained at the Durban Central police station.
