A 19-YEAR-OLD man from Mangwe in Matabeleland South has been sentenced to two months in prison for stealing closed-circuit television (CCTv) cameras at Stockstown Farm.

The value of the cameras is US$400.

Lungisani Ndlovu appeared before Plumtree magistrate Joshua Nembaware on Monday facing a theft charge.

Nembaware suspended the sentence on condition that he restitutes the complainant, failure to which he will serve the sentence.

Prosecutor Selestine Madziwa told the court that on April 9 this year, Ndlovu went to Stockstown Farm and stole the cameras.

Investigations pointed to Ndlovu after farmers said he was acting suspiciously when he visited the property.
