sapsNews24 reports that Gauteng police have nabbed one of their own for allegedly selling SA Police Service (SAPS) recruitment forms.  

The 39-year-old policeman attached to the Florida police station was arrested on Monday by the Gauteng Provincial Anti-Corruption Investigating Unit (ACIU).  Gauteng police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said the arrest came after police were alerted on 10 October about what was happening.  "It was reported that the constable was selling a single application form for R3,500, and applicants had to pay R2,000 upfront.  The ACIU team operationalised the tip-off and, on the afternoon of October 14, they arrested the suspect at a fast-food restaurant in Roodepoort.  He was found in possession of the deposit that had just been paid by a 'victim' who was part of the crime prevention operation," said Peters.  Three other victims had been scammed by the same police officer.  He was scheduled to appear in the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, facing charges of corruption and fraud.
