“One suspect, a 41-year-old male, was arrested in connection with this seizure. The suspect has since been released on police bail.

“The operation included officers from the Narcotics Division assisted by their colleagues from the Tactical Support Division.”

  1. 10 Years for gun, 5 years for each bullet when are you going to use the law of the land on these people?

  2. Police bail this is not something for police bail. This needs to go to a magistrate. The law needs to be used, 10 years for a gun and 5 years for every bullet. He needs to be locked up not out on police bail.
