Cape Town - An SA National Defence Force member was arrested on Tuesday for illegal possession of firearms and ammunition in Delft, in Cape Town, Western Cape police said.

Captain Frederick van Wyk said the man, 37, was found with his legal firearm as well as a revolver, pistol and various ammunition.

He said the two guns were not reported as stolen.

Police pursued him by car after seeing him talking to a known gang member in Roosendal at about 10:00.

At one point, the man apparently threw a bag out of a car window, which was later found to contain the two guns.

The man would appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Friday.

    This country needs Educating. Education in morales and values - education in what is right and what is wrong....Unfortunately too many people do just as they like whenever they feel like it. Corruption is the root of all evil and crime it's partner....People are rotten to the core to such an extent that I don't even trust a Preacher , Teacher or Bartender.
