Two men were caught stealing biltong worth over R900 from a Petrusburg butchery.
The men were loitering behind a butchery in town when two passing policemen noticed them yesterday afternoon, Free State Sergeant Thabo Litabe said today.
“As the two suspects are known for committing crime in the area, the two officers became suspicious and decided to monitor their actions.”
Eventually, the men entered the butchery and the police officers decided to wait outside. The men appeared with two plastic bags containing 33 pieces of unprocessed meat worth R980.
Litabe said the men could not provide proof of payment for the meat and were arrested.
The men were expected to appear in court on Monday facing a theft charge.
