Cape Town - A 57-year-old woman has been arrested for the alleged illegal possession of crayfish, with a street value of R75 000, in Cape Town, Western Cape police said on Friday.
“On Thursday, at about 2pm Grassy Park police received information about an overwhelming smell of fish from a house at Correy Road, Eagle Park,” Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana said.
“Upon investigation members found a white bakkie standing outside, and could also see that there was something loaded at the back covered with a blanket.”
However, there was no one in the bakkie, so police went into the house where they found a woman who admitted the vehicle belonged to her.
“The vehicle was searched and police discovered crayfish tails at the back of the bakkie,” Kinana said.
“The 3727 crayfish tails, to the estimated street value of R75 000 were confiscated. The suspect is expected to appear in the Wynberg (Magistrate's) Court on Monday.”
