Earlier today the Sea, Air and Mountain (SEAM) Team were conducting visible policing patrols in the Red Hill, Ocean View and Kommetjie areas.
According to SANParks, while on patrol they observed three divers on the coastline in the Kommetjie area and proceeded to set up observation posts to monitor the activities of the divers.
After some time, the divers emerged from the water with full diving bags and attempted to hide the bags. The SEAM Team approached the divers and together with them recovered the bags they had hidden.
The bags contained 66 whole West Coast Rock Lobster and 20 West Coast Rock Lobster tails.
All three suspects were arrested and a case opened at Ocean View South African Police Service.
