Johannesburg - Three men were nabbed after being caught transporting four goat carcasses in a hearse in Vryburg on Tuesday, North West police said.

Police spokesperson Sabata Mokgwabone said police on a routine patrol noticed the hearse at around 01:00.

"They followed it, but the driver ultimately increased the speed when he realised that police were following them."

He said the police stopped the hearse, which is from a funeral parlour in Huhudi near Vryburg, and found four slaughtered goat carcasses.

The police interviewed the men and went to the intersection of the Taung-Vryburg road where the skins, four heads of goats and one head of a sheep were found in the grass along the road.

"It was then established that the goats and a sheep were stolen and slaughtered in Tshoseng village near Pudimoe. The meat and skins were confiscated by the police."

The three were expected to appear in the Vryburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
