On 16 March 2018 at about midnight police in Kuruman stopped and sear-ched a suspicious looking delivery ve-hicle in the Kuruman CBD. In the back of the closed space-saver-canopy the members found 2 live sheep. The driver and the passenger could not give a sa-tisfactory reason why they were in pos-session of the live stock, hence they were arrested. Further investigation led the police to a house in Bankara village, Kuruman where the police found 2 more slaughtered sheep car-cases. Two male suspects aged 27 and 33years were arrested. A red backpack containing 2 knives and a round shar-pening stone was found behind the bakkie's seat. The approximate value of sheep is R6000. The investigation con-tinues.
