The arrest at the airport led officers to the fourth suspect at a house in Kempton Park where they found a number of stolen items.
JOHANNESBURG - Four people have been arrested for possession of an unlicensed firearm and suspected stolen passports by a special policing unit monitoring OR Tambo International Airport.
Three suspects were nabbed during a routine patrol near the airport late on Friday night.
This led officers to the fourth suspect at a house in Kempton Park where they found a number of stolen items.
The police's Vish Naidoo said, “We’re also looking at a possibility of having them charged for armed robbery depending on how successful we are in linking them to other cases and we’re also not ruling out the possibility that may have been involved in people to their respective destinations from the airport.”
