Police have seized an assortment of ammunition and an illegal firearm during an operation at Tafelsig in Mitchells Plain.
Spokesperson, Frederck van Wyk, says they acted on a tip-off and arrested a 28-year-old man in Zelda Street after he’d buried a range of ammunition in a black bag in a yard.
He says they also seized a 9mm pistol and 26 rounds of ammunition while chasing a suspect who ran away from the police.
The 39-year-old man faces charges of the possession of a firearm and ammunition. Both suspects are expected to appear in court soon.
