Four men were arrested in Uitenhage early yesterday after police found illegal firearms and ammunition in a vehicle they were travelling in.
Uitenhage police were patrolling the Kruisrivier business area at about 8.30am when they spotted the four men in a red Toyota Tazz, police spokeswoman Captain Gerda Swart said.
They pulled the vehicle over in Schonland Street and searched it.
“Two unlicensed 9mm firearms and a replica AK47 [were found] in the vehicle,” Swart said.
The four men, aged between 31 and 55, were arrested.
