2 Beduin arrested for ‘water theft’

Border Police arrested a father and son from the Beduin tribe of al-Azzma as they allegedly tried to remove water meters belonging to the Mekorot water utility near Kibbutz Revivim on Saturday.
They were caught after the water company filed a complaint with police saying that it had lost water equivalent to the value of NIS 100,000 in the area over the past few months.
The two suspects will be brought to court Saturday evening to have their remands set by a judge.
