Johannesburg - Five policemen and a former policeman appeared in court in connection with the theft of chocolates and alcohol from trucks that had crashed in the Northern Cape, the province's police said on Tuesday.

On July 12, a truck overturned on the N12 near Belmont and alcohol worth about R620 000 was stolen from the wreckage, said Captain Cherelle Ehlers.

On July 17, a truck overturned on the N8 in the province and chocolates valued at about R290 000 were stolen from that wreckage.

Officials from the Directorate of Priority Crimes, also known as the Hawks, and detectives in Kagisho in the province investigated and arrested the five on Tuesday.

Constable Andre Palm from the Kimberley 10111 centre, Constable Errol van Ade from the dog unit and Constable Donovan Bitterbosch, also from the dog unit, appeared in the Kimberley Magistrate's Court in connection with the chocolate charges.

Palm, Van Ade, Constable Tiny Segani who works in a court in Galeshewe, Warrant Officer Dannyboy Nkalitshane from the Kimberley Flying Squad and Marcus Alemona, a former policeman from Hopetown, then appeared in connection with the alcohol theft.

Those arrested on the chocolates case were released on warning.

Palm, Segani, Nkalitshane and Van Ade were released on R500 bail and Alemona was released on warning on the alcohol charges.

They will return to the town's regional court on August 5.

In a police statement, Major General Liziwe Ntshinga, deputy provincial commissioner for the Hawks, commended the investigating officers.

Any suspensions?

Or is it duty as usual?

SAPS Stats please....!

Are these 'cops' not causing the accidents with the intent to loot?
