With serious and violent crimes high on our priority list, members of Fish Hoek police took to the streets on the morning of 17 January 2021, to create a safer environment for the community. Their vigilance paid off when they spotted a minibus taxi under suspicious circumstances in the area.

The vehicle and the occupants were searched, which resulted in the discovery of six unlicensed firearms and ammunition hidden in a concealed compartment in the vehicle. All eight suspects aged in their twenties and thirties were arrested and are expected to face the charges against them in Simons Town Magistrates court on Tuesday 19 January 2021.

SAPS are in the process of investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery and we are optimistic that we will find more reasons to charge the suspects for other crimes too.
