Charges against 10 people, including two women and a taxi owner, who were found in possession of 10 firearms, including a revolver and an R5 rifle, have been withdrawn.
The group was arrested on Friday in Kempton Park on the East Rand after police received a tip-off. They made a brief appearance in the Kempton Park magistrates' court yesterday.
Police spokesman Constable Zenzile Morudi said the court found that there was not enough evidence to prosecute. - Zinhle Mapumulo
