Five suspects were arrested today for the possession of ammunition and magazines and a case of hijacking.

Three suspects aged 57, 51 and 31 suspects were arrested at about 12:00 in possession of 30 rounds and two magazines. The sector team members were on patrol when they spotted a suspicious looking vehicle in Situlo Road in Crossroads.

Upon searching the suspects and vehicle the members recovered the items.

The suspects were arrested and detained.

Two other suspects were arrested earlier at about 10:00 for allegedly hijacking a Toyota Avanza on Thursday last week in Browns Farm. The suspects approached the driver, threatened him with a firearm and drove away with the vehicle.

Further investigations led to their arrest.

The suspects would appear in Athlone Magistrates' Court once charged for the possession of ammunition and magazines as well as hijacking.

Members were applauded for their efforts.
