Three suspected cattle rustlers arrested at Outjo.

Three men aged 19, 35, and 19 years linked to a stock theft syndicate in the Outjo district and to a recovery of three cattle carcasses last Friday, are expected to appear in the Outjo Magistrate's Court on Monday morning.

Spokesperson of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha on Sunday told Nampa in an interview that the suspected cattle rustlers were apprehended Friday afternoon in the Kap and Bou informal settlement in Outjo during a police operation.

She said the trio had allegedly gone to Farm De Hoek situated about 70 kilometres north of Outjo during last week, and on Friday they apparently slaughtered three heads of cattle on that farm.

'According to the information we obtained, the men transported the fresh meat of the cattle to a house in Outjo's Kap and Bou informal settlement that Friday, and we recovered it there during our intensified police operation,' Mbeha said.

She added that the three recovered carcasses estimated at N.dollars 25 000, had been on Saturday handed over to the owner at Farm De Hoek.

Police investigations in the matter continue.
