Six illegal firearms were taken off South Australian streets and out of the hands of criminals during October thanks to information from the community. In fact, Crime Stoppers received a total of 63 contacts from people specifically wanting to share what they know about illegal firearms.

A total of thirteen men and four women were also apprehended for a range of serious offences during the month as a direct result of information shared with Crime Stoppers.
