The Ford Bantam after it collided with a tree.

OHRIGSTAD – The local police have launched a manhunt for the alleged suspects of stock theft.According to the spokesman for the SAPS, Sgt Kholofelo Phokane, they intercepted the possible theft which occurred on Tuesday February 14. Officers on patrol stopped a suspicious vehicle with two male occupants on the R555.”The Ford Bantam was loaded with eight goats. The driver failed to provide the necessary papers for the transportation of the livestock and was asked to proceed to the police station, with the animals,” Phokane said. According to him, instead of the driver heading to Ohrigstad, he allegedly fled in the direction of Hoedspruit at high speed.”We gave chase and the suspects lost control of the Bantam, and collided with a tree. The two suspects ran out of the vehicle and disappeared into the bush leaving the goats in the bakkie.” The livestock are suspected to have been stolen from the Burgersfort area. “A case of suspected stock theft is currently being investigated.”
