A 43-year-old police constable has been arrested for the possession contraband which he allegedly intended to be smuggle into prisons.

Police spokesperson, FC van Wyk, says officers acted on a tip-off and caught the suspect in possession of 329 grams of dagga, two knives, a bottle of whiskey, cigarettes and tobacco.

He says the suspect is expected to appear at the Bellville Magistrates Court on Monday on charges of corruption.

“It is obvious that some corrupt personnel in the force are trying to dent the image of the force, but the police is doing everything with its power to stop all that, that the police is not a home for criminals or criminal minded person”.
