34-year-old man arrested near Piekenierskloof for being in possession of endangered succulant plants

West Coast police arrested a 34-year-old man on Tuesday for being in possession of endangered succulant plants.

The police’s Joseph Swartbooi said that the N7 Flying Squad responded to a call for assistance from Provincial Traffic near to Piekenierskloof.

‘’Upon arrival they requested the passengers to disembark the taxi, with the intention to search the vehicle. The members confiscated a suitcase and backpack filled with succulents.’’

‘’A 34-year-old man was arrested and detained on a charge of possession of flora without documentation,’’ added Warrant Officer, Joseph Swartbooi.

Last week, a 49-year-old foreign national was arrested at Cape Town International Airport, for being in possession of two boxes of endangered succulent plants.
