A MAN was ar­rested for il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of ex­plo­sives in Gars­fontein, Pre­to­ria East, early yes­ter­day morn­ing, po­lice said. Mem­bers of the dog unit re­ceived a tip-off about a ve­hi­cle trans­port­ing ex­plo­sives, spokesman Cap­tain Au­gusti­nah Selepe said. “A white BMW was stopped and searched and com­mer­cial ex­plo­sives with ac­ces­sories were found.” The 44-year-old man was ar­rested and po­lice were in­ves­ti­gat­ing why he had the ex­plo­sives. He would ap­pear in the Pre­to­ria Mag­is­trate’s Court soon to face charges re­lated to the il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of ex­plo­sives. – Sapa
