A joint crime prevention operation in Gansbaai, between the Overstrand Municipality's Law Enforcement K9 unit, Task Team and Core Security, led to the arrest of two suspects and abalone being confiscated on Thursday evening, 15 July 2021.

The members followed up on information received of a group of divers in the water behind Duikerfontein.

The suspects, aged 22 and 44 years old, were detained with the bags they were carrying.

A total of 589 abalone (205 shucked and 384 unshucked) were found in the bags.

The suspects and abalone were taken to Gansbaai SAPS for processing.


President Cyril Ramaphosa has extended South Africa’s level 4 lockdown for another 14 days, with restrictions remaining in place until 25 July 2021.

Therefore, all departments will work at a 50% staff capacity to reduce contact between people in order to slow down the spread of the virus. 

Certain staff may be working from home or on rotation basis, which means telephones cannot always be answered and certain services cannot be rendered in person (face-to-face).

In addition to the above preventative measures, many staff members are either recovering from Covid-19 or in self isolation. Overstrand Municipality, therefore, asks members of the public to be patient.
