DURBAN – DURBAN police, assisted by the Crime Intelligence, have arrested three
suspects for alleged possession of illegal firearms and ammunition.
The suspects arrested in Umkomaas, KwaMakhutha and Folweni area on Monday night, are
aged between 18 and 35 and were scheduled to appear in various courts on Tuesday.
One of the arrested suspects was found in possession of three unlicensed firearms
namely Beretta 9mm pistol, Luger 9mm pistol and P220 9mm pistol with ammunition.
The recovered firearms will be sent for ballistic tests to establish if they were
used in any other crimes in the country.
The KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa,
praised the members for raiding illegal firearms in the province.
He said illegal firearms were contributing to murder in the province.
“Detectives will work harder with their investigations to establish if the arrested
suspects are not linked to any hijackings, business robberies and house robberies in
the province.”
