A Provincial Task Team assisted by experts from Pretoria are investigating the break in at Peddie police station.

"It was reported on Tuesday morning that access to the strong room of the station was gained through the ceiling and firearms were found to be missing," said police spokesperson, Brigadier Marinda Mills.

"It is still a crime scene and a full audit of firearms allocated to the station for operational use and firearms kept for exhibit purposes are in progress.

"Only after this has been completed, we will be able to confirm the number of firearms stolen."
