A man was arrested after police found a vehicle fitted with blue lights in his garage in Vanderbijlpark, Gauteng police said.

"Police acted on a tip-off that led them to an apartment where a vehicle with blue lights was found hidden in a garage," said Captain Kabelo Marumo.

Marumo said the vehicle was apparently stolen in a house robbery in Roodepoort.

A 34-year-old man was arrested.

"On Tuesday, police raided another apartment and found a woman and a man, but the man fled the scene," he said.

Marumo said the woman was found in possession of an unlicensed firearm, a hijacked vehicle, a metro police certificate, cash, credit cards and official documents.

Marumo did not rule out the possibility of the arrested people being linked to a blue light gang.

Police were searching for the man who fled the scene during the raid.

The man and the woman would appear in the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate's Court on Friday on charges of possession of stolen vehicle, impersonating a police officer and possession of unlicensed firearm.
