The duo aged 30 and 37 ere arrested by the members and are due to appear in court soon. The firearm was loaded with ammunition and the members seized it. It will be taken for ballistic testing to check if it was used to commit other crimes.

The high numbers of weapons in the streets have made it easier for criminals to commit crime across the country.
