Man steals CCTV cameras from farm

A 19-year-old from Mangwe, Matabeleland South, has been sentenced to two months in prison for the theft of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras valued at US$400 at Stockstown Farm.

Lungisani Ndlovu appeared before Plumtree magistrate Joshua Nembaware on Monday charged with theft.

Nembaware opted to suspend the sentence on the condition that Ndlovu compensate the complainant for the stolen goods. Failure to comply with this condition will result in the execution of the prison sentence.

According to prosecutor Selestine Madziwa, Ndlovu committed the theft on April 9 this year when he illegally took the cameras from Stockstown Farm.

Suspicion fell on Ndlovu after farmers reported observing his suspicious behavior during his visit to the property. Following the report to the police, Ndlovu was arrested.
