WESTERN CAPE - An intelligence driven operation executed yesterday by members attached to National Intervention Unit and Crime Intelligence led to the arrest of two suspects aged 29 and 45 for the possession of shucked abalone worth an estimated R7 million in Milnerton.

On 21 October 2020 at about 14:00 the members responded to information about abalone stored in a basement at an apartment complex in Century City, Milnerton. On members arrival they found three vehicles loaded with abalone in plastic bags. They seized the three vehicles with 23000 units of abalone. The shucked abalone was handed over to DAFF.
