Homemade shotgun seized, man arrested

Date:

BAU: A jobless man was arrested after police found a homemade shotgun inside his car at Kampung Opar last Friday (July 2).

Bau police chief DSP Poge Nyaon said aside from the weapon, police also confiscated five shotgun bullet shells in a bag.

A police patrol team conducting ‘Ops Tapis’, spotted the suspect acting suspiciously in his car parked by the roadside.

“The team went to conduct inspections and found a shotgun and the bullets inside a bag.

“As a result, the 37-year-old man was arrested and taken to the district police headquarters for further actions,” he said.

Background checks found that the man had a past record. He also tested positive for drugs.

The case is being investigated under Section 8(a) of the Arms Act 1960 for possessing firearms and ammunitions without a license and Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

On the same day, the patrol team also arrested two other jobless men aged 22 and 36 years in Kampung Opar after they tested positive for drugs.

Both suspects are being investigated under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
