Three people have been arrested in Theunissen, 60km south of Welkom, for possession of stolen goods, Free State police said on Tuesday.

After receiving a tip-off, police searched two houses in Tshepong section and found two undocumented plasma televisions, said Captain Stephen Thakeng in a statement.

The two TV's owners, a 31-year-old and 39-year-old woman, were both arrested and the TVs seized.

The women told police they had bought the TVs from a house in the area.

Police searched the house after being given permission by its owner, a 32-year-old man. The search led to the discovery of a hidden plasma TV and laptop.

The man was also arrested after failing to provide documentation for the items, Thakeng said.

The three televisions and the laptop seized by police were valued at R35 000.

The two women and man were expected to appear in the Theunissen Magistrate's Court on Wednesday. - Sapa
