Perlemoen smugglers behind bars
25 September 2011
Nine alleged perlemoen smugglers will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
The suspects were arrested in Milnerton when they were caught with perlemoen worth an estimated two-million-Rand.
Police acted on a tip-off and caught the men loading 610-kilograms of the endangered seafood onto a truck at a business in Killarney Gardens.
Spokesperson André Traut says they had apparently planned to take the load to Cape Town Harbour.
