Johannesburg -  A former police officer was sentenced to eight years in prison for stock theft, North West police said on Saturday.

"The stock theft unit demonstrated their commitment to theft of livestock when they secured the conviction of a former police official, Baleseng Lucas Serole," said Captain Pelonomi Makau.

Serole, 38, was sentenced on Monday. He was arrested in Potchefstroom in February 2012.

There are two pending cases of stock theft and one of attempted murder against Serole, Makau said.

He will appear in the Mogwase Magistrate's Court on October 6 and 7.

Serole resigned from the police service in 2008 after he was arrested for his involvement in an ATM bombing in Jouberton, Klerksdorp, Makau said.

    You kill & steal millions you get fined and get away with it or spend less than 5years in jail. You steal less than a million rand, you get heavy sentences! Weird justice system
