An 18-year-old man was arrested on a charge of illegal possession of ammunition after police received a tip-off last Thursday.

The police’s stabilisation unit from Steenberg acted on information from the public about a firearm at a house in Roos Court, Lavender Hill.

Steenberg police spokesperson Warrant Officer John Bartlett says on arrival at the premises police officers found two 9mm Luger rounds, one hollow point round and four 9mm rounds of ammunition.

However, no firearm was found on the premises.

The man appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

In a separate incident on the same day a 19-year-old was arrested for possession of drugs.

The stabilisation unit was busy with crime prevention patrols in Roos Road, Lavender Hill when they spotted a man who acted suspiciously when he saw the marked police vehicle.

“When the officers searched the man they found nine packets of tik, two dagga stoppe, one mandrax tablet and cash amounting to R120 in his possession.

“He appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court last Friday,” says Bartlett. V Anyone with information on illegal activities should call Steenberg police on 021 702 9000 or Crime Stop on 0860 010 111.
