Uniformed criminals

Police warn of uniformed criminals

Most criminals are using uniforms to gain trust before a hold- up or robbery is carried out.

On Wednesday, police apprehended two suspects who were part of a gang of men dressed in police uniforms as well as uniforms from other organisations.

The men were allegedly intercepted by a mobile squad unit around 11am, following a failed alleged hold-up.  

Police say at least one suspect was in a police uniform while another had on a T-Shirt with the logo of the Labour department.
