Police on Thursday made an abalone bust worth R2.4 million.

Officers in the Overberg acted on a tip-off about a vehicle travelling from Buffeljags near Swellendam to Stanford.

They then patrolled the route.

The police’s Joseph Swartbooi explained: “The driver of the suspicious vehicle transporting the load became aware of police members; he tried to flee and evade arrest. Eventually he lost control, which resulted in the vehicle ending up in a ditch next to the road. The suspect fled the scene on foot.”

No arrests have been made yet.
