Efforts to address the proliferation of illegal Firearms in the Elsies River precinct resulted in the arrest of two suspects. The two were caught yesterday afternoon after they were chased by police members between Goodwood and Elsies River.


While police members were pursuing the suspects the latter started shooting at the police, but the members retaliated and chased them up to the Maitland Cemetery, where the two suspects were caught and two Firearms recovered from their possession. One of the suspects was injured during the shoot-out. Both Firearms were reported stolen: one in 2012 in Thembisa and the second one in 2015 in Sea Point.


The two suspects, aged 18 and 33, will appear in the Goodwood Magistrates' Court, once charged for the possession of unlicensed Firearms, attempted murder, possession of presumable stolen property and discharging a firearm in a municipal area.


Police members were applauded for their sterling effort in ensuring they arrested the suspects so that they can face the full might of the law.
