Twenty-two people, including three police members, have been arrested on charges of poaching and perlemoen trading.

This follows a lengthy investigation by the Hawks and Marine and Coastal Management in the Western Cape.

Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela says the syndicate has been active since July 1998.

It has reportedly been operating in the Western Cape, Gauteng, the Northern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
