Three suspects will appear in the Bellville Magistrate court today on charges of possession of abalones.
The three were arrested yesterday after officers received a tip-off that led to a search of the house in Willow Street in Stikland.
“During the search 13 800 shucked abalones, about two tons were found with an estimated value of about R1.6 million,” said police spokesperson Captain Bernadine Styne.
The three were arrested on the scene.
