Cape Town police have arrested four people for being in possession of drugs as well as unlicensed firearms and ammunition in two separate incidents.
According to SAPS spokesperson, Wesley Twigg, the arrests took place in Bishop Lavis and Old Crossroads where two suspects aged 23 and 33 were arrested for being in possession of a .38 Special revolver with no serial number, ammunition and drugs inside a wendy house.
Twigg says two other suspects aged 19 and 26 were also arrested when the members searched premises in New Rest informal settlement Old Crossroads and recovered a shotgun hidden under a bed in the house.
The suspects will appear in Athlone and Bishops Lavis Court respectively to face the charges against them.
Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident, Manenberg police have launched a manhunt for the suspects involved in the murder of a ten-year-old boy. Police spokesperson Andre Traut says the young boy was caught in a crossfire between two rival gangs in the area.
Traut indicated that the incident took place on the corners of Priscilla Ngeni and Chemist Mlungu Streets in Tambo Village.
