The Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department (EMPD) Community Liaison Unit (CLU) Officers in conjunction with the South African Police Service Crime Intelligence Unit, arrested a 38-year-old female suspect for possession of unlicenced firearms, rounds of ammunition and possession of suspected stolen motorcycle, in the Duduza area.

The Officers received intelligence from a whistle-blower who provided sufficient information to positively link the suspect, following several robberies occurring around the Duduza area, officers were directed to a residence on Coolbreez Street.

On arrival, they found a female occupant and requested to search the house. The law enforcers uncovered two (2) black 9mm pistols, an air gun, twenty-two (22) blank ammunitions, eighty-two (82) spent blank cartridges and a motorcycle (Alpinestars Wiselo Ogio) with defaced vehicle identification numbers (VIN) with a helmet, all with an estimated total value of sixty-five thousand Rands (R65 000).

All the necessary stakeholders were summoned to the scene; however, the female suspect alleges that all the items found belonged to her boyfriend who was nowhere to be found. The suspect was arrested and detained at the Duduza police station and will soon appear before the magistrate court.

All the items were booked at the police station, for further investigation.
