The group appeared in the Kenhardt Magistrate's Court on Friday, Colonel Priscilla Naidu said. The matter was postponed to 25 February for a formal bail application.

Police received a tip-off on Tuesday about possible stock theft in the area. Two suspects, including the officer, were found in a bakkie carrying six sheep.
