A suspect allegedly involved in abalone poaching has been arrested in Cape Town after a high-speed chase during the early hours of yesterday morning. The man was nabbed after a complaint was lodged of poaching along the Atlantic Seaboard.

The City’s Law Enforcment spokesperson Wayne Dyson says officers noticed suspicious activity along the Sea Point Promenade. A man was seen loading heavy items into a vehicle and then driving away in a hurry.

Officers followed the vehicle, and the police’s flying squad managed to stop him after several attempts. They found 76 units of abalone as well as diving equipment. The driver was arrested, and the vehicle seized.
