    Default Castle Beer Recovery - Windhoek

    I am not sure that the recovery of 8 beer out of 100 crates can be called a success.

    At least all the beer didn't go to waste.

    THE Windhoek City Police have recovered 200 stolen crates of beer worth N$48 408 from various shebeens in the city. The recovered beer is just half of the 400 crates that was stolen from Castle Brewing over the weekend. In collaboration with the Namibian Police, the City Police yesterday retrieved some of the stolen beer by letting the suspects, arrested earlier in the day, collect it from the shebeens they had sold it to.

    Assistant Superintendent Philip Shikongo told The Namibian that they acted after receiving a tip-off from a member of the public.

    According to Shikongo, the masterminds behind the theft pretended to be employees of a local supermarket and ordered 400 crates of Castle and Black Label beer by telephone.

    Companies have an arrangement with Castle Breweries under which they get their orders delivered and pay later.

    The delivery was made last Friday.

    One shebeen in Katutura's Eveline Street allegedly bought 100 crates of stolen beer worth N$10 000. The police recovered only eight beers from there.


    Another shebeen in the same area allegedly bought 40 crates for N$4 000.

    Leon Scheepers, the depot manager of Castle Brewing Namibia, said two other, similar cases were being investigated.

    The shebeen owners were not present when the police visited their outlets yesterday, so people found working at the shebeens were arrested for buying stolen goods.

    One bartender told The Namibian that a man had visited their shebeen and told them he was selling beer cheaply because he got it "on special".
