The De Aar police and Kimberley Mounted unit seized livestock worth almost a quarter of a million rand during a recovery operation in Richmond.

THE DE Aar Stock Theft and Endangered Species unit and the Kimberley Mounted unit seized livestock worth almost a quarter of a million rand during a recovery operation in Richmond.

Northern Cape police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said a 51-year-old man was found in possession of 107 Merino sheep that were allegedly stolen at a farm near Sutherland.

“The sheep were stolen between April 30 and September 21 and are worth about R235,000,” said Kock.

“The police registered a stock theft docket and it will be presented to the senior State prosecutor for a decision.”

Kock added that the operation was part of the police’s Safer Festive Season campaign.

“The SAPS will continue to tighten the grip and squeeze the space for criminals to operate,” he warned.
