South African 'hot cop' sparks social media meltdown

This hunk is making waves around the internet for being a 'hot' South African police officer...

Have you come across Devan Cox? Back in 2022, this police officer broke the internet when he was discovered for his dashing good looks. 

When Devan Cox was first discovered, the internet spiralled and it happened again when the SAPS officer posted another picture of himself in his uniform. As you can imagine, social media users were beside themselves.

Take a look at the video that was circulating the net a few years ago:

The confident police officer posted a mirror selfie showing off his smouldering good looks and expertly fitted police uniform. 

The caption read, "same game different level". As shared by Jacaranda FM, "after this post, the verdict was unanimous; everyone wanted to be arrested by him."

Take a look at some of the comments shared by online users: 

  • "Ooooh what a hot cop. I [have] been bad arrest meeee"
  • "All I'm saying is I drove 120km/h in a 60 zone"
  • "What law must I break so that they send you to arrest me sir?"
  • "You can arrest me anytime"
  • "Please arrest me. I am a criminal"
  •  "I want to turn myself in" 

After some super stalking (as we are sure most of the net is doing right now), it appears that Devan currently resides in East London in the Eastern Cape.

Hey, Dev, come see us in studio when you're in KwaZulu-Natal?
