The Florida Police constable who is facing charges of assault, intimidation and theft alongside a male colleague, appeared in the Roodepoort District Court yesterday (14 June).

The two asked Magistrate Delize Smith permission to apply for bail. Today (15 June), they appeared in Court J in front of Magistrate Baloyi. He set the date of the bail hearing at 19 June.

Before the accused stood down they asked the State to be transferred from Krugersdorp Correctional Facility to the Roodepoort Police Station cells. They allegedly feared for their lives due to their being police officers in a prison environment.

The female police officer (name known to the Record) is said to have strong ties with the drug world. She is also known to have been in a relationship with a Nigerian drug lord and could often be seen driving around in his luxury vehicle – this according to one of the complainants who laid the charge of intimidation against her. She allegedly threatened to kill him and his family.

The complainant also informed the Record this morning that Nigerian drug dealers, with whom he is familiar, had told him that the female accused has a cellphone in her cell and has been in contact with them. This could not be confirmed though.
