Grassy Park police arrested two men on Friday afternoon after four firearms and ammunition were found in Parkwood.

Provincial police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk says the arrest came on Friday at about 13:00.

“Grassy Park crime prevention officers were busy with crime prevention duties in the Parkwood area when they received information that firearms are stored at an address in Falcon Way and that the firearms were about to be removed from those premises.

“Members then went to the address,” Van Wyk says.

After searching the premises they found a 12-gage shotgun, three .38 Special handguns, 12 .45 rounds, 21 shotgun rounds and ten .38 Special rounds.

All the firearms have serial numbers, police confirm.

Two men, aged 34 and 48 years, were arrested on charges of possession of unlicenced firearms and possession of ammunition.

They will appear on these charges in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court once charged.

V Anyone with crime information is urged to contact the police station on 021 700 3940 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111. All information will be treated as highly confidential.
