On Friday 27 July 2018, Melkbosstrand NHW Anti-Poaching Unit were informed by a resident that poachers are in the area.
Members of MNHW APU were activated and contact was made with SAPS Sea Border Unit.
The joint operation between SAPS Sea Border Unit, SAPS Melkbosstrand, Morningstar Plot Watch, Table View NHW and APU resulted in the recovery of 410 units shucked and 12 units whole state Abalone with an estimated street value of R211 000.00.
Melkbosstrand Neighbourhood Watch APU would like to send out a BIG shout of thank you to SAPS Sea Border Unit, SAPS Melkbosstrand and all the volunteers from Morningstar Plot Watch, Table View NHW and MNHW APU members who give up their valuable time to assist keeping our Marine area protected.
We need your assistance in fighting crime and poaching. You can either volunteer and if you don’t have the time consider donating. As an community organisation all money is spent on actively fighting crime in the Melkbos area.
Besides the impact on our marine life, poachers introduce various other criminal activities and organised crime to the area, including but not limited to fraud, drug distribution, theft and intimidation towards the public or more if not kept under control.
Please make contact with us if you are able to assist.http://www.melkbosstrand.net/poaching-success/House Break In
