Abalone bust in Monte Vista

Two men were arrested by provincial police in Monte Vista after finding abalone in their possession last week.

The bust took place near a service station in the area. It is alleged the abalone was discovered in the back of a car’s boot.

Several residents wrote on social media they could hear shots being fired. There was speculation that a robbery had taken place, and also that a hijacking occurred, but this was denied by Sgt Noloyiso Rwexana, provincial police spokesperson.

“No armed robbery was reported, however, the police did arrest two men in their 30s for being in possession of abalone,” Rwexana says.

“A shot was fired by a suspect who fled the scene.”

Rwexana adds that no one was injured.

She says the value of the abalone is yet to be determined.

The suspects will be charged with the illegal possession of abalone.

In May last year abalone worth R1.3 million were found at a house in Monte Vista.
