Two men nabbed in Protea City for possession of unlicensed firearms

Firearms were confiscated.

Two men aged 32 and 35-years-old respectively were arrested for possession of two unlicensed firearms and possession of ammunition this afternoon on Impala road in Protea City, Soweto.

Police received a tip off to lookout for a white Toyota Corolla which was allegedly involved in shooting incident in Roodepoort.



The police spotted the vehicle on Impala road which had two male occupants. They stopped the vehicle and searched the suspects.
