It's not a Generations story line. These criminals were found with stolen liver worth R500 000

Viewers of popular SABC One soapie Generations now know the value of liver. 

Made popular by the character of Oby, it's always a liver affair. 

But some criminals from Philippi in Cape Town decided to take their love for liver a little bit too far after they were caught in possession of sheep liver that's worth a staggering R500 000.

The liver had reportedly been stolen. According to media reports, members of the Maitland Flying Squad received a tipoff that suspects were carrying boxes in the area. 

Officers descended on the given address and they stumbled across boxes of sheep liver being loaded into a truck, bakkies and an SUV. 

The liver is alleged to have been stolen in the Killarney Industrial area. 

“The load was delivered in Philippi, where people collected the boxes again. A total of 2 225 boxes of sheep liver were seized with a value of R500 000.

“Fifteen suspects aged between 25 and 35 were arrested and detained in a case of possession of prohibited stolen property," said police spokesperson FC Van Wyk. 

So there you have it. Liver is in high demand afterall.
