Rustenburg - A 42-year-old woman and her brother, believed to be part of a syndicate stealing goats, were arrested in Ledig, near Rustenburg, North West police said on Monday.

“The pair was found in possession of a goat carcass, meat, as well as 6.1kg of dagga with a street value of R3 000,” said Sergeant Kealeboga Molale.

“It is suspected that the pair is part of a syndicate that has been stealing and selling goats in KwaZulu-Natal.”

She said over 357 goats were stolen over the past three months in several villages around Mogwase and Madikwe.

The woman and her 31-year-old brother were expected to appear in the Mogwase Magistrate's Court on Monday.

They have been charged with possession of suspected stolen goods and possession of dagga.

“Investigations into the matter continue and more arrests are imminent,” she said. - Sapa
