Mitchell’s Plain police officers were conducting stop-and-searches in Weltevreden Road, Rocklands last Tuesday at 20:30 when they saw two men walking down the road.

They asked to search them and found an Arminius HW 38 Special revolver on one of the men.

The officers confiscated the gun and six live rounds.

The 21-year-old was arrested.

In an unrelated matter on the same day at 13:00, officers received a tip-off that guns were being kept at a house in Crag Street, Tafelsig.

On arrival they asked to search the house and found a .38 special gun with six .38-calibre rounds and eight 9mm rounds in a cupboard.

A 42-year-old man was arrested on charges of illegal possession.
