Cops raid abalone plant

A large amount of abalone was confiscated.

Police raided an abalone-processing plant in Monte Vista on Thursday January 18 and arrested four men between the ages of 25 and 35.

A large quantity of abalone was seized during the operation as well as abalone-processing apparatus.

Provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Khombinkosi Jula said the seizure was a significant blow to the illegal abalone trade.

Goodwood police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Hennie Rademeyer said the men would appear in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on Monday January 22.
