Four suspects due in court for possession of #RhinoHorn and protected flora

ESTERN CAPE – In our pursuit to ensure that offenders of the law are brought to book, our members attached to the Malmesbury Stock Theft Unit and Vredendal Crime Intelligence teamed up with members of Cape Nature Reserve and conducted a clandestine operation yesterday, 16 May 2020 in Citrusdal which led to the arrest of four men aged 23, 30, 36 and 46.

They were apprehended in possession of a variety of protected flora and a rhino horn. The value of the confiscated items is yet to be determined. The suspects are due to face charges of dealing in protected flora and the possession of rhino horn in the Citrusdal court on Tuesday.
