Guns and other weapons seized during March

Posted on 30/04/2019

Information provided to Crime Stoppers SA during March assisted in the seizure of a number of firearms and dangerous weapons. These were taken off the streets and out of the hands of criminals. The seizure consisted of ammunition, crossbows, knuckle dusters, slingshots, batons and tasers.

In addition to nearly 60 calls about firearms, we were contacted about a number of vandalism offences, a serious crash at McLaren Vale, a home invasion and an aggravated robbery.

Tip offs led to 65 apprehensions during the month, including 35 men and 6 women charged with a range of serious offences that included trafficking a controlled drug, firearms and weapons offences and possessing commercial quantities of meth-amphetamine.

Our weekly crime segments on 9News Adelaide asked for help to solve the cold case bashing murder of Peter Seaford in 1989, as well as a serious hit and run at Blakeview that left a 22-year old woman with serious injuries.
