FOURTEEN suspected stolen firearms – including revolvers, handguns, an automatic rifle and a pepper gas gun – were confiscated and fourteen men arrested during a sting operation in the Mount Ayliff area last night (16/07/15).

According to police, a task team was formed two months ago to investigate a spate of armed robberies in the Mount Alyliff area.

Police spokesman Captain Mlungisi Matidane said several operations, targeting identified hotspot areas, were held since the task team came into effect.

Last night several raids were conducted in the Bizana area leading to the arrest of all fourteen suspects at different houses.
