Cape Town - Police have cracked a fake gun licensing racket – arresting three police members and three civilians, one of them alleged to be a senior leader of the 28s gang.

National police spokesman Lieutenant-General Solomon Makgale said on Thursday night that the racket involved fraud at every step of the process – “from the initial application to the firearm training facility involved, to the police stations where the applications are lodged and the head office where the applications are approved”.

The police had launched “Operation Combat”, using officers from a range of specialised units

. The Pretoria offices of the SAPS Central Firearm Registry were raided and documents and electronic equipment seized.

“Firearms and ammunition were seized following the arrests of three civilians in Cape Town.”
