Kraaifontein SAPS members arrested a 29-year-old male for possession of six unlicensed firearms, ammunition and drugs at 12:00 on Tuesday, 30 April 2019, in Duine Street, Scottsville, Kraaifontein.
The members were following up on information received from the public that firearms and drugs are kept at a wooden structure at the back of the residence. The structure was searched and six unlicensed firearms were recovered. They also discovered around three thousand rounds of ammunition hidden in a backpack in another cupboard. Over six thousand mandrax tablets, with a street value of more than R250 000 were also discovered inside the structure.
