Manenberg police have found and retrieved and found almost 900 rounds of ammunition abandoned in an open field recently.

“Manenberg’s crime prevention unit received information from the community of ammunition abandoned along Lansdowne Road,” says Captain Ian Bennett, Manenberg police spokesperson.

The ammunition, usually used for hunting, was handed in at the Manenberg police station.

Manenberg station commander Brigadier Enolium Joseph is grateful that the community had call to report the abandoned ammunition.

“It is unimaginable the amount of lives that have been saved through this find. The community spared the trauma of losing a loved one and the trauma gunfire has on our young people. We will continue to encourage the community to report any illegal gang activities or any activity that could jeopardise the safety of Manenberg community,” states Joseph.

V Anyone with information can contact Manenberg police station on 021 699 9400 or CrimeStop 0860 010 111.
