A man and a woman have been arrested in separate incidents in Cape Town for the illegal possession of ammunition and drugs, respectively.
Police spokesperson Wesley Twigg says the two are expected to appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate’s Court this week after being charged.
He says members of the Provincial Extortion Task Team arrested a 56-year-old man for the illegal possession of ammunition in Mfuleni, while a 36- year-old woman was arrested in Eersteriver for illegal possession of mandrax, when officers executed a warrant.
Members of the police received information about a firearm and ammunition at an identified premises and searched it. While searching the premises the members found 21 x 7.65 rounds of ammunition in a safe.
When asked if the man had a licence to possess ammunition, he could not produce one.
In an unrelated matter, members of Kleinvlei Crime Prevention Unit executed a search warrant in Grosvenor Street, High Places, Eersteriver, while searching the premises the members confiscated 3000 mandrax tablets.
