Port Elizabeth - A 29-year-old male suspect was arrested on Monday afternoon and a prohibited and unlicenced firearm recovered with 12 rounds of live ammunition.

"This followed after SAPS Flying Squad members saw a white Suzuki Swift vehicle offloading a male passenger on the intersection of the M17 and M19 between Motherwell and Kwazakele," said police spokesperson, Captain Andre Beetge.

"When the police were spotted, the Suzuki made a speedy getaway, but the male that got off was arrested.

"In his possession a 9mm pistol (with serial number removed) was found with 12 rounds of ammunition."

Capt Beetge said that he was charged for the possession of a prohibited and unlicensed fire arm and ammunition.

"He will be appearing before the Motherwell Magistrate's Court on Tuesday."
