A 38 year old man, who thought he could permanently borrow a black three-legged pot, appeared in the Katutura Magistrate Court last week.
Karl Bester was arrested on 14 October last year and charged with theft under false pretence.
On 25 September last year he borrowed a pot from a Mr J Williams but when Williams later asked for his pot back, the accused allegedly said the pot is his after he had kept it for about a month.
Williams then alerted the police about the theft and Bester was picked up. He is currently out on N$500 bail and will return to court on later this year while the investigations continue.
