Cape Town - Johan Steyn, father of Springbok flyhalf Morné, has been ordered to pay R25 000 to a complainant after an alleged theft.

According to Die Burger, all charges against Johan Steyn were dropped in the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court on Wednesday after an agreement was reached with the complainant, according to which Steyn was ordered to pay R25 000 to Tanya Janse van Rensburg of Stafix Electrical Fence Centre in Oranjesig.

Steyn was warned that he could face prosecution if he failed to pay the amount stipulated.

Steyn's lawyer, Johan Kramer, said his client had already paid him the money and it will be forwarded to Janse van Rensburg.

Steyn was arrested in February last year for allegedly stealing 11 gate-motors, one garage-door motor, parts for gate-motors, three laser beams and remote controls from Stafix.

Christoff Gaosenkwe (22), who worked for Stafix, was last year sentenced to 18 months in jail for stealing his employers' gate-motors. He claimed Steyn was his accomplice.
