Galeshewe - A man was arrested in Lerato Park, Roodepan, on Monday for possession of suspected stolen copper valued around R50 000, Northern Cape police said.

Police received a tip-off about two men pushing a wheelbarrow loaded with copper, but when they arrived the police found only one man, Lieutenant Donald Mdhluli said.

The man would appear in the Galeshewe Magistrate's Court soon.
