The protection of living marine resources remain key to policing priorities in the Western Cape and therefore members remain committed and their endurance ensured that a 36-year-old suspect find himself behind bars facing a charge relating to the illegal possession of crayfish.
On 06 February 2024 at about 19:15, members attached to Operation Restore received information that crayfish are being stored at a premises in Summit Road, Pinati, Hanover Park.
