NamPol officers steal alcohol

Two 24-year old NamPol officers base at Oranjemund were arrested last week for stealing beer and cash from a bar in one of the informal settlements.
Sgts Dominikus Swartbooi and Kevin Teddy Katzao were picked up from their Oranjemund base on Monday after they had raided Omuti Wakula Bar in the Sande Informal Settlement stealing two bottles of beer, N$500 cash, a bottle of White Horse whiskey and one bottle of Castello.
The value of the stolen goods was estimated to be N$800
Swartbooi and Katzao, who both graduated last year, appeared in the Oranjemund District Court on Wednesday where their case was postponed to tomorrow for further investigation.
They are both out on N$600 bail.
 Karas Regional Police Commander, Commissioner Armas Shivute confirmed the incident on Friday.
Shivute said his office had already recommended the suspension of the two officers.
“I am really concerned about these young men who join the force now. A police officer stealing liquor is very disappointing,” Shivute said warning that officers who do not change their behaviour will lose their jobs.
“They will return to the streets if they are not careful,” the commissioner said.
