Western Cape: Investigations into the circumstances of the arrest made in Lwandle for the possession of abalone yesterday, led detectives to an abandoned Ford LDV, parked on the corners of Pama and Kusasa Roads in Khayelitsha yesterday afternoon. The vehicle was searched, which resulted in the discovery of 6742 units of abalone. A short while later, three suspects aged 24, 27 and 39 were arrested, while driving another Ford LDV, also in Khayelitsha. They had diving equipment in their possession and they are linked to the abandoned vehicle and the arrest made in Lwandle earlier that morning. The suspects who are from Hermanus, are expected to make a court appearance in Khayelitsha once they have been charged.
