Johannesburg - Two men dropped a package containing ammunition and police handcuffs during a chase in Pinelands, a City of Cape Town spokesperson said on Tuesday.

Law enforcement officers were helping at an accident scene on Jan Smuts Drive on Sunday when they saw two men acting suspiciously near Langa Cemetery, said spokesperson Neil Arendse.

They ran after the men and a chase ensued in which one of the men dropped a package.

Inside it, wrapped in newspaper were 29 rounds of 9mm ammunition, a magazine and cleaning kit for an R-5 rifle, and police handcuffs and a key.

The two men got away.

Arendse said the contents of the package were handed in to the Pinelands police station.

Further investigations would be handled by the police, he said.
