Cops seize firearms

Lesotho Times - - News -

PO­LICE last week seized six un­reg­is­tered firearms and 15 rounds of am­mu­ni­tion dur­ing their coun­try­wide Stop-and-search op­er­a­tion.

Six knives, two stolen cars, three fight­ing sticks and two scis­sors were also con­fis­cated dur­ing the op­er­a­tion.

Po­lice spokesper­son Clifford Molefe said three peo­ple were ar­rested in con­nec­tion with some of the seized weapons. It was not im­me­di­ately clear if the three had al­ready ap­peared in court.

“we will con­tinue to carry-out th­ese op­er­a­tions as there is need to re­move th­ese il­le­gal and dan­ger­ous weapons from the wrong hands,” Se­nior In­spec­tor Molefe said.
