An ex-police officer told Oscar Pistorius's murder trial on Friday that his colleagues were clumsy with evidence and even stole a luxury watch from the crime scene.Former station chief Giliam van Rensburg, who was among the first on the scene of the Valentine's Day 2013 killing and the one who arrested Pistorius, retired from the police last year.Van Rensburg described his reaction when he was later told a watch was gone.Defence lawyer Barry Roux already blasted police misconduct during the athlete's bail hearing last year, and it is expected to be a key element of the defence as the trial continues.The defence targeted last year's mishaps once more on Friday, accusing Van Rensburg of tailoring his testimony so that the prosecution would not call Botha again.
