Ten men were arrested for allegedly disrupting basic infrastructure at the free state Klipfontein Farm.

Railroad tracks have reportedly been found in men between the ages of 25 and 50, said Free State Hawks spokesman Captain Christopher Singo.

They were arrested on Thursday while unloading the parts from a trailer.

The case has been handed over to the Hawks for further investigation and the 10 suspects will be on trial on Monday.

“These parts are usually sold to illegal junk yards. These unregistered junk yards are mostly used,” Singo added.

The men will appear in front of the Vrede Judgment Board on March 28th.
