TWO suspects, aged 31 and 32, will appear before the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court on Friday, 17 February, on a charge of illegal possession of abalone, as well as reckless and negligent driving.
According to Sergeant Sinah Mpakane, on Wednesday, cops received a tip-off about a certain vehicle en route to Bloemfontein from Mthatha suspected to be delivering abalone.
“While on patrol on the N6 about 10km from Bloemfontein towards Reddersburg, the said vehicle was spotted. Police tried to stop the driver, but they refused to stop.
“A chase ensued and the suspect drove into the township of Phase 2, Mangaung,” Mpakane said.
She said as the high-speed chase ensued, the suspects lost control of the vehicle while trying to turn on the corner and crashed into the fence of one corner house. They then jumped out of the vehicle and ran on foot. One of the police officers who tried to arrest one suspect was injured with a sharp object on the stomach,” Mpakane said.
She said community members assisted the police and also gave chase.
She said the duo were accosted and handed over to the police.
“A Toyota Corolla with an estimated 100kg abalone with the street value of R200 000 was confiscated to be used as evidence in court,” said Mpakane.
The pair is facing charges of illegal possession of abalone, reckless and negligent driving and assault of a police official.
