After a preliminary investigation, a 62-year-old man and his 61-year-old wife were arrested on suspicion of possession of arms or ammunition without a licence, possession of offensive weapons and possession of an imitation firearm.

The suspected arms were taken away for inspection. The case is being investigated by Sham Shui criminal investigation team six.

Last month, police arrested a 19-year-old man in Tai Po after he allegedly fired a live round at officers intercepting him. A suspected pistol was found at the scene. Police then conducted a raid on another flat at Jade Plaza, backed by a court warrant, and discovered an AR-15 rifle, 211 bullets for the rifle and 44 hollow-point pistol rounds.
