Swift reaction by Bethal Stock Theft Unit leads to arrest of three men

Three men aged between 22 and 45 were arrested today, 7 September after they were found with a bull suspected to have been stolen during an auction in eMalahleni (Witbank).

The apprehension follows swift action by the Bethal Stock Theft Unit members when they attended the auction.

They spotted a bull in a trailer that was ready to be sold by three men, who when quizzed, failed to account on the bull’s particulars, including the brand mark it bore.

A short probe revealed that the bull was allegedly stolen from a farm near Bethal.

The owner confirmed that one of his bulls was missing when he was contacted.

The men were arrested on allegations of stock theft and are scheduled to appear in the Bethal Magistrate’s Court on 12 September.

For enquiries, contact Sgt Gerald Sedibe at 082 565 7131.
