Police said two officers had been suspended from duty
Two South Wales Police officers have been arrested for allegedly selling police property on the internet.

The pair - a man, 31, and a woman, 27, who are both constables - are accused of selling clothing and equipment.

They were arrested earlier this month and have been bailed pending an investigation, South Wales Police said.

A spokesman said the force was investigating "the misappropriation of police property and possession of controlled drugs".

The spokesman added: "A 27-year-old female and 31-year-old male have been arrested on suspicion of these offences and have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.

"Both individuals are serving police officers and have been suspended from duty while South Wales Police's professional standards department carry out a full investigation."
