A close relative of a former senior police officer was nabbed at the Argyle International Airport allegedly with five rounds of live ammunition on Thursday morning.

Well-placed sources told iWitness News that a male in his 20s who is employed at the airport had the ammunition in half of a sandwich around 11 a.m.

Reports are the worker was clearing with security to report for duty when the ammunition was found in the sandwich.

The man has been taken into police custody and officers have launched an investigation into the discovery.

The development comes less than a month after the end of a firearm and ammunition amnesty in which the public surrendered 18 firearms and 327 rounds of ammunition to police.

  1. The senior police officer donot have a name?What is soup for the goose is sauce for the gander.

  2. This is double speak with the intent to disguise and cover up the crime. If the allegation is factual, then the individual should head straight to jail until he is convicted. There is something in.the mortar besides the pestle. Was the individual a relative of a senior police officer or a former commissioner ?

  3. Take warning says:

    The person who found it and expose it, look out, in my opinion. yo job gone or if lucky transfer
