ON MONDAY morning, Kokstad police assisted by Stock Theft Unit recovered 28 suspected stolen sheep in the area. The police had received information about suspected stolen sheep along the river bank. The police followed up information that led them to the place where sheep were found. All sheep were tied up with ropes and two of them were already dead.

An inquiry has been opened for further investigation and we are appealing to any one whose sheep are missing or stolen to come forward and identify the recovered sheep. No arrests have been made and the investigation continues.

KZN SAPS Commissioner, Lieutenant-General Mmamonnye Ngobeni commended the community for raising an alarm and informed the police about suspected stolen sheep. “I encourage livestock owners to make sure that they brand-mark their livestock so that it will be easier to trace the owners if found,” she said.
