Thanks to the quick action of Grassy Park crime prevention and crime information team, two illegal guns have been taken off the streets. The guns were confiscated on Monday 30 March.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith explains: “At approximately 11:45, our members followed up on information relating to a firearm that was being kept in Willow Road, Parkwood.” A search warrant was executed at the premises and a CZ Tauris 38 special with eight rounds was found.

Kleinsmith says the second gun was confiscated at Lotus River High School. “A call was received saying that a pupil at the school was in possession of a firearm. Upon arrival at the scene members found an 18-year-old boy of Ottery with a black Cz 9mm firearm with 15 rounds in the suspect’s possession,” Kleinsmith says. The suspect was arrested and is being detained at the police station
