The South African Police have arrested three men for possession of stolen meat in Humansdorp.
Spokesperson, Sergeant Majola Nkohli says police members were busy with routine crime prevention duties in Penny Lane on Friday afternoon around 4 pm when they noticed three men carrying bags.
They started acting suspiciously when they saw the police vehicle.
Nkohli says the three were stopped, and upon searching the bags, police found raw meat.
He says instead of providing an explanation for the meat, they chose to remain silent.
They were arrested for possession of suspected stolen property.
The suspects, aged between 18 and 49, are due to appear in the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Humansdorp Cluster Commander, Brigadier John Lebok lauded the members for the good work.
“The Rural Safety Strategy includes regular patrols near farms and abattoirs to curb stock theft incidents”, added Brig Lebok
