The police of the Maitland flying squad noticed a car driving at excessive speed on Baden Powell Drive in Muizenberg on Friday last week at about 02:00. They followed the suspicious car to the N2 Gateway settlement in Delft, where they lost sight of it.

Later the car was found abandoned, with 968 unshackled abalone packed in seven bags inside. The estimated street value of the abalone is about R2.5m. No arrests have been made yet.
