Four arrested over unlicensed guns

Four men in a VW Polo who were pulled over by police after they drove up a one-way street in Uitenhage yesterday were arrested for possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

Police spokeswoman Captain Gerda Swart said police stopped the driver on Algoa Road at about 9am.

“On searching the vehicle, police found two firearms, a pistol and revolver, with ammunition.”

The four men, in their late 20s, were arrested and the vehicle was confiscated.

They will appear in the Uitenhage Magistrate’s Court this week.
