In an effort to combat property related crime, 26 year old Vuyisile Mayegiso appeared in the Klerksdorp Magistrates’ Court on 6 January 2020, for possession of suspected stolen goods. The accused was arrested on Saturday, 4 January 2020, after being found in possession of six sheep at a small holding in Klerksdorp.

According to information available at this stage, the accused was nabbed after police swiftly followed up on information about the possession. As a result, the accused was arrested after he failed to give proper account for possession of the sheep.

Further investigation into the matter revealed that the recovered livestock were part of a flock of 30 sheep which were allegedly stolen on a farm situated on the N12 between Wolmaransstad and Klerksdorp in the early hours of Saturday morning. The sheep were allegedly stolen from a kraal, then driven towards the N12 where they were loaded into a vehicle.

Meanwhile, eight other sheep were found grazing about 4km from the kraal.

Upon appearance in court, the accused was granted R800.00 bail. He will reappear in court soon.
