Illegal firearm, duo to appear in Orkney court

Two suspects, aged 30 and 40 are expected to appear on Monday, 8 November 2021, in the Orkney Magistrates’ Court for unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.

The pair were nabbed on Thursday, 4 November 2021, by members of the Dr Kenneth Kaunda District Illegal Mining Team, after being found in possession of a pistol, one magazine, ammunition, three cellphones and a firearm holster.

That was after members who were conducting crime combatting patrols in Kanana near Orkney, received and operationalised information about apparent illegal possession of a firearm at a residential complex.

One of the suspects was spotted during observation throwing out a pistol through the window of the flat. Consequently, the pair were arrested after the above mentioned items were found in their possession.
