Yesterday afternoon police arrested a 28 year old male for being in possession of illegal fire arm and ammunition at a certain address, Lotus informal settlement.

Captain Elliot Sinyangana says the police were on routine patrol when they stopped at a house and inside there were two males and two females chatting. Police asked permission to search them and during that search a pistol was found at the waist of the 28 year old male person.

“He was requested to produce a license or permit to possess that fire arm and failed to do so.’ Preliminary investigation was conducted around the ownership of the fire arm.”

The fire arm was robbed from its lawful owner and a case was reported last year in Khayelitsha. Apparently the Victim was walking along Lansdowne road when he was held at gun point, khayelitsha area and his fire arm taken
says Sinyangana.

“The suspect will face a charge of possession of illegal fire arm and ammunition as well as armed robbery.’’

He is due to appear on Tuesday, 30 March 2009 in the Athlone Magistrate court.
