Police were executing search warrants at various addresses in the area. The first address for which a search warrant had been issued was at Vuurleville Street, Rosendal, Delft, where police found three pistols, 140 live rounds of ammunition and seven magazines in a VW Golf motor vehicle that was parked at the back of the house.
A minibus taxi that was parked next to the VW Golf was also searched and police confiscated 170 mandrax tablets, 30 Ecstasy tablets and powder, 28 Tik sachets, dagga in a small plastic bag and a .38 Special revolver 8 pinning barrel.
The estimated street value of the drugs is R19 000.
A search was conducted at the house opposite this house and police found two diving suits with a pair of diving shoes and an undisclosed amount of cash.
