Western Cape police are trying to clamp down on the illegal gun trade.

At least four suspects have been arrested and several firearms and an assortment of ammunition seized during raids in Durbanville, Kouebokke Veldt near Ceres and near Philadelphia respectively.

In Durbanville and a farm in Kouebokke Veldt officers found firearms including shotguns, revolvers, pistols and ammunition. Two men were arrested at these respective premises.

Near the Philadelphia area on a farm a shotgun, two rifles, nearly 90 rounds of ammunition and three cartridges were seized. An undisclosed amount of cash, ten boxes of dagga, 50 dagga plants, three fans and other equipment to produce cannabis were also confiscated.

Police say a 56-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man were arrested. The pair face charges of illegal possession of firearms, ammunition and dagga.

These suspects are expected to appear in court once charged.
