ON April 18, Kokstad Stock Theft unit members conducted a crime intelligence operation after they received information about suspected stolen cattle in Kokstad.

After following up on the information received, they discovered that 12 cattle were stolen and arrested two men aged 19 and 38.

“From investigations conducted, it appears as if the cattle were stolen from Mount Ayliff in the Eastern Cape Province,” said SAPS
spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala.

The KwaZulu-Natal Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa commended the members for their swift reaction on the case.

“Our Stock Theft units will conduct a number of operations in a bid to curb livestock theft in the province.

“These operations will include the prevention of cross-border crimes,” Langa said.

The men will appear in the Kokstad Magistrate’s Court for stock theft today.
