Stabilisation Team arrests trio for stock theft

POTCHEFSTROOM – Three suspects, aged between 25 and 38, were arrested on Friday night, 10 June 2022, for Stock Theft by the Ngaka Modiri Molema District Stabilisation Team members.

The trio's arrest came after the team members responded swiftly upon receiving information about a slaughtered cow in Sesana Section near Makgobistad Village, outside Mahikeng. Upon questioning the suspects, they could not provide a satisfactory answer regarding the slaughtered cow, which was found in their possession.

All three suspects were then arrested and are expected to make their first appearance before the Molopo Magistrate's Court in Mmabatho on Monday, 13 June 2022.

The Provincial Commissioner of North West, Lieutenant General Sello Kwena, thanked the members for a job done well.
