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 14:00 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 3 727 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."
