Nyanga Police arrested 10 people for the possession of unlicensed firearms, ammunition and stolen property on Wednesday.

The crackdown took place in just two hours. The first gun was seized by police in Marks Tyam Street, Lusaka.

Following an armed robbery case, police found seven suspects with another gun inside a shack.

Captain FC Van Wyk said this was followed by an arrest of a man after members received information of an armed individual.  Members spotted the suspect while patrolling in the street. The suspect tried to run but was caught with an unlicensed 9mm firearm.

This culminated to the arrest of two Somalian nationals who were stopped while driving on the corner of Bristol and Eisleben Road in Browns Farm. On searching the vehicle a 9mm Taurus and 16 rounds of ammunition were recovered underneath the driver’s seat.

All suspects aged between 17 and 28 appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court Thursday, for the possession of unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
