Police investigate stolen goods at Mowers' hideout

Police are to meet today to deal with the stolen property that was found at the man-made burrow of the alleged serial rapist of the Hemel-En-Aarde who terrorised residents of the area and held two children captive.

A farmer told a daily paper that a joint venture between them and the police will see investigations into whether Johannes Mowers was helped.

However, police spokesperson Inspector Bernadine Steyn says that this is not true.

"We will be looking at exhibits that were found at the burrow,” she said, adding that she was not allowed to say who the police were meeting with.

Mowers escaped from Caledon Circuit Court in 2004, and police arrested him again on March 4. He appeared in court on Tuesday where he was sentenced to three years for the escape.

Mowers faces more charges of housebreaking, rape and pointing a firearm.
