During an intelligence driven operation early this morning in Gousblom Street, Mount Pleasant, Hermanus, members of the Overberg Crime Intelligence, Maitland Flying Squad and National Intervention Unit arrested two suspects for illegal possession of Firearms and ammunition.


Members followed on information and search the premises. During the search a 34-year-old male was found in possession of a .357 Magnum while he was sitting in a vehicle outside the premises. He will be charged with possession of a firearm without licence.


Members also found a shotgun on top of the roof of one of the rooms. It was later discovered that the shotgun had been reported stolen in Caledon. The members also found small amounts of Dagga and Tik. A 39-year-old suspect was arrested and he will be charged with possession of firearm without licence and possession of drugs. A further charge of dealing in liquor without licence will also be added since a large amount of liquor was also confiscated.


Both suspects will appear in the Hermanus Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 2 January 2018 on the said charges.


The Provincial Commissioner of the Western Cape, Lt Gen Jula commended the members for their efforts to bring perpetrators to justice and he thanked the community members who reported the criminals.
