Continued efforts to rid the Western Cape of unlicensed firearms and ammunition yielded positive results when members of the Anti-Gang Unit arrested four suspects between the ages of 20 and 44 during crime prevention operations in the Mitchells Plain area for the possession of unlicensed firearms and attempted murder.

During these operations a shotgun, a .38 special revolver and a 9mm pistol were confiscated.

Once charged the suspects will appear in Mitchells Plain Magistrate’s court on Wednesday 10 November 2021.
