An abalone facility is discovered in Grabouw

The Hawks uncovered an abalone processing facility in Grabouw on Thursday.

The unit’s spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Philani Nkwalase confirmed on Sunday its Serious Organised Crime Investigation team, together with Crime Intelligence as well as officials from the Department of Forestry Fisheries and Environmental Affairs (Deff) in the Western Cape conducted an intelligence-driven operation.

They discovered an illegal abalone processing facility in Grabouw worth more than R5,4 million on Thursday 25 June.

Nkwalase said the search and seizure at the premises, situated in Oudebrug Street, discovered freshly cooked and dried abalone as well as processing equipment. “All these were seized for further investigation,” he said.

The spokesperson said two suspects, aged 59 and 52, were arrested for illegal possession of abalone and appeared in the Grabouw Magistrates Court on Monday 29 June.
