WESTERN CAPE We are making headway in our pursuit to disarm criminals in this province. This is what three female suspects in Ravensmead and Steenberg learnt yesterday when they were apprehended for the possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

Members attached to the Ravensmead Crime Prevention Unit reacted on a tip-off and conducted a search operation in Marion Crescent last night. Two female suspects aged 28 and 43 were found in possession of two Z88 and one Norinco pistols, 13 rounds of ammunition, 1208 mandrax tablets, and close to 1kg of tik.

In Lavender Hill yesterday morning, members of the Anti-Gang Unit arrested a 22 year old female with an unlicensed 357 revolver and 60 rounds of ammunition in Chapel Road during a search operation.

The suspects are expected to make court appearances in Bellville and Wynberg once they have been charged.
