FOUR theft cases have been opened at Port Shepstone police station where 14 pigs were stolen.

The incidents occurred at a farm in Oslo Beach recently and detectives are appealing to the public to come forward with information regarding the crimes.

“There has been a spate of theft of pigs from a farm in Oslo Beach recently. The police need any information relating to the cases,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

The complainant reported that pigs are being taken from a pen, slaughtered and then carried away by the perpetrators. “Although spoor has been picked up by Port Shepstone K9 unit dogs, the police dogs could only detect the spoor up to a certain point,” said Wiid.

Anyone with information regarding the stolen pigs or pork meat being sold, must contact Constable Rouen Govender on 039 688 1090 or 076 465 5552.
