“It was established that the driver was a police constable from the Eastern Cape. It turned out that the vehicle had been stolen from Durban earlier this year, and that its number plates were false,” said police spokesman, Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid. “The vehicle’s ignition had also been tampered with.”
Both men were arrested and will appear in court in Durban.
