Thieves caught with R480,000-worth of cellphone tower batteries

The Hawk’s Port Shepstone Serious Organised Crime Investigation and Port Shepstone K9 announced that they arrested three suspects on the N2 on Tuesday when they found cellphone network batteries that were reported stolen.

"Information was received of a van travelling on the N2 to Port Shepstone loaded with a number of cell phone tower batteries," the SAPS said.

Kudos to The Hawks’ Port Shepstone Serious Organised Crime Unit for arresting these oxygen thieves. Put them in jail and throw away the key.

48 cell phone tower batteries were recovered at the scene – 24 Vodacom batteries and 24 Colide batteries weighing around 90kg each.
48*12v (assuming) = 576v :unsure:

Each can get off free if they can hold the ends of a cable where all those are connected in series. :sneaky:

Vodacom should just offer a reward in free batteries to the public if they assist in the arrest of these guys - Whatever is recovered during an arrest you get to keep a battery or two :laugh:

wire up all those batteries and tell them to hold the end of the wires

Well, when even your illegal power connections aren't reliable one has to be creative and come up with other ideas
