Police arrested a sergeant yesterday after he went missing with two service weapons in a patrol car.
The officers launched a search for the sergeant yesterday morning when he did not return after his night shift.
The man failed to hand in his service pistol and shotgun after completing his shift.
His colleagues were anxious when he did not pitch for his shift.
Police arrested him yesterday afternoon in Strand.
A metro police spokesperson told the Cape Argus that the man faces charges of illegally being in possession of the firearms and patrol vehicle.
