Three arrested in Kenton, gun and ammo recovered

Story from: The Announcer

SAS Kenton

Early on Friday morning, while the community of Ekupumleni, in Kenton, was asleep, two SAPS members were patrolling the streets when they noticed a male behaving suspiciously. They stopped him and during a search, they found a firearm. He said that it belonged to his friend. The members took him to a house that he directed them to where they found two males.

During questioning the trio were unclear on the acquisition of the weapon. They were then taken to the police station. Initial investigations revealed that the firearm had been linked to a house breaking and theft case that was opened in Seafield.

Brigadier Morgan Govender the Cluster Commander of Port Alfred commended the two members for their vigilance in arresting the three suspects and preventing other crimes from taking place.

He said: “Congratulations on your arrests. These are the culprits who have been terrorising our community. I am certain that they will be linked to several of our cases within the Cluster. Continue to serve and keep our community safe!”

Two of the suspects have been sought by the Port Alfred Detectives for cases of house robbery. Detectives are currently busy with the charges and linkages.

The suspects are all in their mid to late 20’s.

The first suspect will face various charges including possession of unlicensed firearm, possession of ammunition and possession of drugs and the other two will face charges of house robbery.

They will appear at the Kenton on Sea Magistrate’s Court and the Port Alfred Magistrate’s Court respectively on Monday, August 14.
