A 41-year-old man was arrested in Khayelitsha after he was allegedly found in possession of stolen Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) cables worth R300 000.

The police found the cables in a container in Site C that allegedly belonged to the man.

"Once charged, the suspect will make a court appearance in the Khayelitsha [Magistrate's Court] to face the charge against him," Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut said.

"Cable theft has a detrimental effect on the economy of our country, and we urge the public to report any suspicious behaviour in this regard to Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or by using our mobile application My SAPS."
