Limpopo man found with rifles, revolvers
Johannesburg - A 37-year-old man was arrested in Leeukuil, Polokwane, on Wednesday for unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition, Limpopo police said.
The man was found around 04:00 with three rifles, two revolvers and 331 live rounds of ammunition, said Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.
The firearms and ammunition were found in a safe, two boxes and a wardrobe. They belonged to his father who recently passed away.
Ramatseba said: "The suspect should have applied for permission to store the firearms in terms of the Fire Arms Control Act while applying to possess them in terms of the... act, if he wanted to keep them."
The firearms were to be sent for ballistic tests to determine whether they had been used to commit any crimes.
The man was expected to appear in court soon.
