Cape Town - A man was arrested in Milnerton, Cape Town, on Thursday morning for possession of perlemoen, Western Cape police said.

Warrant Officer November Filander said a house on Bailers Way in Sunset Beach was raided around 01:00, where they found "a huge amount" of perlemoen in freezers and other equipment, with a street value of R12m.

But fisheries department spokesperson Lionel Adendorf said that when the department received the consignment of 5 152 units of perlemoen, the value seemed to be considerably less.

"From what we have seen, the quality of it and the number of abalone, we do not think it is even close to a million [rand]."

A man was arrested at the house and would appear in court soon.
