Captain Frederick van Wyk said the man, 37, was found with his legal firearm as well as a revolver, pistol and various ammunition.

He said the two guns were not reported as stolen.

Police pursued him by car after seeing him talking to a known gang member in Roosendal around 10am.

At one point, the man apparently threw a bag out of a car window, which was later found to contain the two guns.

The man would appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Friday. – Sapa
