Partnership policing in Ravensmead resulted in the arrest of three suspects yesterday and three firearms being confiscated after the community provided valuable information to our members on patrol. At around 07:15 a 32-year-old suspect was arrested in Aalwyn Street, Uitsig after he was found in possession of a 9mm pistol and seven rounds of ammunition. Later the same day at around 18:45 two suspects, a female and a male both aged 58 were arrested in Clare Street Connaught Estate after they were found in possession of a 9mm pistol and a .38 Special and 20 rounds of ammunition.
