Man Has Been Arrested In Joburg, Look At What Police Found With Him After The Arrest

If a person wants to have a firearm, such a person has to go through some legal processes and procedures in other to get hold of the firearm. For example, every civilian requires a license or a permit to own weapons in most countries in the world. However, if a civilian is found with an unlicensed weapon, he or she would be arrested as it is a crime to carry an unlicensed weapon around.

Sadly, some people don't have regard for laws and regulations, hence they carry unlicensed firearms to create havoc in our communities. It should be noted that criminals refer to unlicensed firearms as it would be difficult to determine their owner when it is used to commit a criminal offence.

A man has been arrested by the JMPD Undercover officers at Bok & Wanderers str in Joburg. It was gathered that the suspect had possession of an unlicensed firearm which he pointed at a member of the public.

After the suspect was arrested, he got detained at Hillbrow SAPS. Removing unlicensed firearms from the streets will reduce the propensity for them to be used to commit a crime.
