A 24-year-old man was arrested for the illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition in Hanover Park on Friday morning.

The arrest came shortly after police were informed by a member of the public about a firearm incident. Police officers on patrol acted swiftly and located the suspect in Derwant Street.

The young man was searched and arrested on the spot for carrying an illegal 9mm CZ pistol and ammunition. A magazine was also confiscated from him, say police.

A case has been opened and is currently being investigated.

The man appeared in court yesterday.
