CAPE TOWN – Bellville police have arrested a man for allegedly shooting a taxi driver.
Officers searched the areas in Bellville’s CBD on Friday night after a 59-year-old taxi drvier was wounded in a shooting.
The police’s Andre Traut says officers followed a tip-off from community members, which led to the arrest of a man who’d left behind his weapon, an assault rifle and 23 rounds of ammunition.
“The suspect is due to appear in court on Monday to face charges of attempted murder and possession of an unlicensed firearm.”
In a separate incident last night, police arrested a man and woman in Lwandle for being in possession of a tub of tik, six packets of tik, scales and cash to the tune of R109,160.
“We have reason to believe that this money is the proceeds of drug trafficking. The suspects are due to make a court appearance in Strand on Monday.”
