2 nabbed in weapons find

Thanks to two Saldanha police officers’ quick response, two suspects were arrested for possession of dangerous weapons this past weekend.

One of the weapons was found to be a pistol stolen in a home burglary in 2017. According to WO Yolanda Kotze, her colleagues originally responded to a complaint of malicious damage to property on Saturday 1 May, around 11:00.

The home owner in Diedam Street, Diazville explained two men had damaged a window, and he suspected they had a weapon on them. The men had left the scene after the incident.

After receiving a description of what the two were wearing, constables Mzukisi Chama and Venketesh Septoo patrolled the area and spotted the suspects in Vraagom Street.

On searching them the constables found the two had various knives and a pistol on them.

“The suspects were arrested,” Kotze said. “On investigation the officers could identify the pistol as one that had been stolen from a Saldanha home four years ago. Various property was stolen at the time – laptops, other electronics and the pistol.”

She said thanks to the attentiveness and quick response of the two officers of the C-shift, two potentially dangerous suspects were caught.

The two males, aged 40 and 43, appeared in the Vredenburg Magistrates’ Court on Monday on charges of the possession of an unlicensed firearm and of dangerous weapons.

An additional charge of malicious damage to property will also be added.
