Top property agent nabbed for rhino horns

Bloemfontein - A well known property agent from Bethlehem, her husband and another woman were arrested for illegal trading in rhino horns, Volksblad reported on Wednesday.

The 61-year-old agent and the woman, 58, were arrested after they were caught in a police trap after months of investigation, the paper reported.

The agent and her 57-year-old husband stayed on a farm in Fouriesburg, which was managed by the husband.

A police dog was used to find the four rhino horns in the farmhouse.

The couple and the woman were in custody and held by police in Bethlehem.

They were expected to appear in the Bethlehem Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
