A woman has been arrested and appeared in the Worcester Magistrate Court on Tuesday, 30 May, after being found in possession of several firearms on Sunday, 28 May. Police spokesman, Sergeant Wesley Twigg said cops arrested the woman after they received a tip off.
The Anti-Gang Unit received information about firearms at a property in Southam Street, Stradford Green, Eerste River, and proceeded to search the location which led to the discovery. They found a pistol, a revolver, three imitation firearms, ammunition, 200 mandrax tablets and ten zip lock plastic bags containing crushed mandrax. The 30-year-old woman was immediately arrested for the possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition, the possession of imitation firearms, and possession of drugs.
In a separate incident on the same day, members of the Anti-Gang Unit arrested a 26-year-old man for the possession of two homemade zip guns. Following a tip-off from Crime Intelligence of firearms hidden at a premises in Excelsior Way, Worcester, the members found and confiscated the zip guns, which were found to be hidden in a room. The man was arrested and taken into custody.
Both suspects appeared before the Worcester Magistrate Court on Tuesday, 30 May, on charges relating to the possession of firearms.
