FOUR SUSPECTS ARE DUE TO APPEAR IN COURT FOR UNLAWFUL POSSESSION OF FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION

NELSPRUIT – Four suspects are due to appear at the Emalahleni Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, 21 October 2020, following their arrest by police yesterday at Vosman. The suspects were allegedly found in possession of firearms and ammunition.

According to the report, the police received information about suspicious male occupants driving in a blue Renault Sandero and details were also given that these men were making some strange movements at a certain house in the Vosman area. The members responded to the information and spotted the vehicle with four men inside and it matched the description as reported. The police stopped the car and upon searching, they found two firearms with serial numbers filed off in the possession of these men. The firearms were loaded with ammunition and the suspects were then arrested.

The police investigation has revealed that one of the suspects is attending court for a murder case in KZN and they (police) cannot rule out possibilities of adding more charges with regard to the confiscated firearms.

The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma has commended the members for their swift response to the information provided by the community which has led to the arrest of the suspects. He said that the efforts by both police as well as members of the public are believed to have come in time and it prevented possible violent crime that could have been committed by the suspects.
