Gangsters disarmed in Kensington and Manenberg
WESTERN CAPE: Our endeavours to disarm gangsters in this province are proving to be fruitful. During the early hours of this morning Kensington detectives conducted a tracing operation in an informal settlement adjacent to 18th Avenue following a tipoff and arrested a 28 year old suspect who was caught in possession of an unlicensed shotgun. The suspect who is linked to a local gang in the area is scheduled to make his court appearance in Goodwood on Monday.
In an unrelated police intervention two suspects who are also regarded as gang members were arrested in Manenberg last night in possession of an unlicensed firearm by members of the Crime Prevention Unit. The suspects are scheduled to make their court appearance in Athlone on Monday.
