Concerted efforts by members of Sea Border police to protect our marine life led to the arrest of four suspects between the ages of 18 and 25.
The quartet were found in possession of abalone between Hartenbos and Klein Brakrivier on Wednesday, 03 May 2023.
The members received information about divers who are diving at the river mouth and followed up the information.
They did observation until the divers appeared from the water.
Members ensued with a search and found 407 chucked abalone with an estimated street value of R72 000-00 in their possession. Diving and harvesting equipment were also confiscated.
The suspects were arrested and detained at Da Gamaskop SAPS.
The suspects are due to make their court appearance in the Mossel bay Magistrates court, once charged.
