Crime Intelligence Clerk Arrested For Tipping Off Drug Dealers About Police Raid

As much as the members of the South African Police Services continue to fight crime daily from dangerous criminals who break the law, they also face a significant challenge from within as they are faced with some members of the law enforcement agencies being discovered to be in collaboration with some criminal elements. It gets to be heart breaking that various members of the law enforcement agencies create strategies that intend to arrest law breakers, but there are those from within who leak information to the same criminals who are supposed to be arrested.

A deeply concerning revelation has surfaced as a 41 year old former crime intelligence clerk has been arrested b the police for allegedly alerting suspected drug dealers, about the police operations that were planned. The suspect has already appeared before court and he was not alone in this hearing as he was with a 32 year old suspected drug dealer, the duo appeared in the Kimberly Magistrate's Court .

The arrest of the two suspect was a job which was well coordinated by the members of the Hawks's serious crime investigation unit. And according to reports both men were arrested on Friday and then they made their appearance before court on the very same day. According to Nomthandazo Mnisi from the Hawks the arrested suspects are facing corruption charges, as well as defeating the ends of Justice charges. This was a swift job that had to be done by the serious organised crime investigation team.

What the members of the HAWKS discovered is that the former clerk of crime intelligence leaked critical information to one of the main suspected drug dealers about a sting operation, which was about to be conducted by the police, and then eventually the same information was circulated to the rest of the suspected drug dealers.
