As police ranks in ‘E’ Division were conducting a mobile patrol on an All-terrain Vehicle (ATV) along the Mabura Trail about 14:15hrs yesterday, a man was approaching on a motorcycle from the opposite direction and upon seeing the ranks, he dropped a taped parcel, turned around and sped away. The parcel was retrieved and found to have contained a 9mm Taurus Pistol with four (4) live matching rounds.
The suspect was pursued but managed to escape the lawmen. The weapon has been lodged.
Investigation in progress.
