A Manenberg duo were arrested on Sunday (7 May) after Metro Police found them in possession of drugs, a firearm and ammunition. 

According to a report from Metro Police spokesperson, Senior Superintendent Zelda Martin, shortly after midnight, officers arrested a 55-year- old woman and a 32-year-old man in Manenberg. 

Martin says officers responded to a Shot Spotter alert in Rhone Street and were tipped off about the shooter's whereabouts. 

Officers went to the address in question and a search revealed a bag containing one chrome .45 pistol, 182 rounds of .45 live ammunition, one parcel of dagga, 15 bankies of tik, seven dagga stoppe and mandrax hidden in a kennel which was secured with a board nailed to the entrance.

 “Both suspects were charged for the illegal possession of drugs, a firearm and ammunition,” Martin says.
