After a steamy love making session at his home in Ndlazi in Katlehong, Ekurhuleni, the woman demanded the money.
That’s when the 44-year-old man told her he didn’t have any cash. But he promised to pay her soon and gave her his licensed firearm to hold in the meantime.
Then he went to the police station and told the cops that his gun had been stolen!
According to Captain Mega Ndobe, police investigated and found that the man had lied. Cops went to the woman and the firearm was seized.
Ndobe said the man was charged with perjury and will appear in the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court today.
– Three men between the ages of 35 and 37 were arrested in Katlehong on Saturday for possession of a hand grenade.
One of the suspects tried to sell the grenade to a policeman.
