The North West police have confirmed the arrest of two men for possession of suspected stolen guns and who were expected to appear in the Ganyesa Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.
Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said the men were 34 and 52 years old.
“They were arrested after police acted on a tip-off on Tuesday, 9 August 2016, about illegal firearms in Louwna near Ganyesa,” Mokgwabone said.
“The firearms, one stun gun (used at an abattoir) but modified to discharge live ammunition, three live rounds of ammunition, two home-made zip guns and four empty cartridges were found hidden inside a toilet and farming machinery.”
Mokgwabone said a further probe revealed that the stun gun was reported stolen in 2008 from an abattoir in Vryburg.
