Stolen Goats Found at Govt Farm

KEETMANSHOOP police last week found 13 of the 14 stud goats stolen from farm Huns at a government-owned farm in the South.

Farm Vergenoeg, which is in the Kalahari near Koeumls, was given to the Karas Development Trust towards the end of 2011 under the government resettlement programme.

Police chief inspector Bennie Groenewald confirmed that the goats, each valued at N$5 000, suspected to have been stolen from farm Huns, about 30km south of Keetmanshoop, were found at Farm Vergenoeg.

The goats, Groenewald said, were found with their ear tags removed. He said a preliminary police investigation found that the goats were transported in a government truck.

Two suspects, Andries Arnoster and Pius Davids, who were arrested in connection with the stolen goats, have already appeared in the Keetmanshoop Magistrate’s Court on charges of stock theft. They were denied bail and remanded in custody.

Groenewald said the investigation into the alleged stock theft continues.
