A 21-year-old inhabitant of Ste-Croix has been arrested for possessing illegal weapons: according to the police, he was selling “tasers” on Facebook.
The selling of tasers is illegal in Mauritius.
Constable Falhad from the police station of Trou-Fanfaron came across a post on Facebook relating to the selling of the weapon. He pretended to be a client to get more information.
Thereafter, he went to meet the man selling the tasers at St-Croix where constables Mohungeer and Islalon arrested the suspect.
