A 48-YEAR-OLD man was arrested for possession of unlicensed firearm at Mandela Park in KwaNyuswa last week.

Hillcrest police spokesperson Constable N. Manqele said the man was arrested by the members of the community and apprehended and then taken to the police for shooting in the park.

“The firearm was recovered with seven live rounds. It will be forwarded to the ballistics unit to check whether it was not used in other crime activity in the country,” he said.

The man will appear in Pinetown Magistrate’s Court this week.

The acting station commander commended the good work done by the community members. - Supplied.
