MAUN: Police here are still on the look for a stock thief who escaped after he was allegedly caught with 80 heads of cattle near Makalamabedi village recently.

According to Maun Police station Commander Peter Gochela, a man was found with 80 heads of cattle at Tatamoga cattle post near Makalamabedi. The suspect allegedly fled the scene on horse and a week later he is still at large. The police who were acting on a tipoff thereafter drove the cattle to Makalamabedi for safekeeping and identification by their owners.  Gochela said some farmers have already identified some of the cattle as theirs. “As part of the investigations we have collected statements from all the farmers who identified their cattle.

Gochela said the suspect has been on the run, but they remain hopeful to nab him soon as he is well known. The man is reportedly a well known cattle rustler in the Makalamabedi area.” We have opened a rigorous manhunt for him and we are also appealing for members of the public who could know him to help us nab him” he said
