# The Durban regional court sentenced a 39-year-old former police member to ten years direct imprisonment for possession of an unlicensed firearm and rhino horns. In October 2018, KwaMsane police tactical response team member, Sizwe Buthelezi, was seen leaving Hluhluwe iMfolozi park. A police task team and Ezemvelo Wildlife officials tried to stop him but he sped off. Buthelezi eventually lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a house. Hawks spokesperson, Simphiwe Mhlongo, says he was found in possession of a hunting rifle and two freshly cut rhino horns.
