06 September 2018

A 29-year-old man from Hermanus was arrested on the N2 near Somerset West on Tuesday morning 4 September after 1 375 units of abalone was found in 10 plastic bags on the back seat of a Toyota Auris he was driving.

According to Somerset West police spokesperson Sergeant Suzan Jantjies, at 08:30 an off-duty police officer of the Stabilisation Unit was travelling on the N2 when he noticed a suspicious-looking Toyota Auris and Toyota Etios driving next to each other in the direction of Cape Town. This action caught the attention of the officer who decided to follow the vehicles.

When the Etios driver realised he and the other driver were being tailed, he or she sped off.

The Auris’ driver turned back towards Somerset West, and the officer went in pursuit, calling for back-up. With the assistance of Somerset West and Metro police officers. the officer managed to pull the vehicle over at the N2-Victoria Road intersection.

The Auris driver was arrested following the discovery of the abalone, which was confiscated along with the vehicle. The suspect has been charged accordingly and will soon appear in the Somerset West Magistrate’s Court.
