The two men were nabbed on Tuesday night, said police spokeswoman Noloyiso Rwexana.

“Partnership policing in the Kleinvlei area contributed to stopping two men in their tracks last night when police acted on information they received  from the community about abalone that was kept in a house in Blackheath,” Rwexana said.

The two men, aged 24 and 31, who were arrested are expected to appear in court on Friday.
