MORE than 560 rounds of unused ammunition – worth about R10000 – were recovered by police and navy divers in the Swartkops River in Port Elizabeth yesterday.
Spokesman Captain Stephen Marais said police had been notified after a father and son fishing near the Amsterdamhoek bridge at low tide noticed the bullets submerged in the water.
“They recovered a range of ammunition and police and defence force insignia,” Marais said.
“The ammunition includes nine R1 rifle rounds, 361 rounds for a 9mm pistol and 194 rounds for a .303 rifle.”
He said that at this stage police were unable to confirm whether the rounds belonged to a government institution or if they were privately owned.
“Some rounds were found in boxes and others on the riverbed,” he said.
