“They ensued with a search of the premises where the members seized four handguns, 122 rounds of ammunitions(various makes), cell phones, a flat screen television set, computer screen, housebreaking implements and 22 grams of Tik with an estimated street value of R20 000.”
Police also seized police uniform pieces which were found inside the main bedroom of the house, none of the suspects are police members hence the origin of the uniform pieces forms part of the overall police probe.
