Suspect due in court for possession of prohibited firearm

Efforts to eradicate illegal possession of firearms in our communities yielded positive results when members of Delft police were busy with stop and search operations on Tuesday (2022-05-31) in Covid City, Delft. The members spotted a male who tried to evade them, and searched him. The 27-year-old man was arrested and detained when he was found in possession of a revolver without ammunition for which he could not provide a valid license.

Once charged, the suspect is expected to make a court appearance in the Bellville Magistrate court on a charge of possession of a prohibited firearm.
