STOCK THEFT is on the rise around AbaQulusi and the SAPS is urging community members with livestock to be extra vigilant.

The issue of stock theft was among the main crime issues that were raised at the meeting between Neighbourhood Watch and the SAPS last week.

In a very recent incident, a school teacher was released on bail of R2500 after having been caught stealing cattle with two accomplices near the Sasko area.

The three are said to have been loading the cattle onto a trailer that was being pulled by Thamsanqa Mncube’s (a Vryheid school teacher) bakkie.

The trio is said to have made a run for it when they saw a police vehicle approaching but Mr Mncube failed to outrun the police.

Mr Mncube’s case was postponed to October 29 and the other two are still at large.
