Gauteng SAPS ask people for help in finding fake cops
13 August 2016
Gauteng police have advised community members to come forward with any information about suspects who pose as fake cops as tracking criminals down is proving to be difficult.
Yesterday, a Roodepoort woman and her toddler were kidnapped and robbed after being stopped by fake cops who accused her of robbing a bank.
The mother, who says she was stopped by men dressed in the police uniform, told her to get into their vehicle so that she could fill out a statement at the police station.
Spokesperson Kay Makhubele says while some have been arrested for the illegal use of police uniforms they are having a tough time finding other criminals.
