Police hunt for daring stock thieves

By Tapiwa Machemedze

Daring thieves got away with 51 goats from Chipadze Farm, Bindura last Wednesday in a single raid.  

The suspects used a white commuter omnibus to ferry the goats belonging to nine Chipadze farmers, according to police.

Police are hunting down the suspects and appealed for information which may lead to their arrest.

“Police in Bindura are appealing for information which may aid investigations of a stock theft case which occurred on 21 July 2021 at Chipadze Farm. The unknown suspects went to Chipadze Farm with a white omnibus and stole 51 goats belonging to 9 farmers. Anyone with information should contact any nearest Police Station,” posted the police on their Twitter page.

This is the second major case of goat theft  reported recently following an incident in which a Beitbridge woman Sarah Chauke allegedly stole 150 goats worth $663 000 around Lutumba and Tshapfutshe areas for slaughter and sale in South Africa.
