    Default Arms cache found at home of SANDF member

    Good on the police for finding the guns. I don't know about "massive", but at least these guns and their handlers are of the street, hope they catch the rest of the scum soon.

    PRETORIA - Police have arrested two men after a massive arms cache was found at a house in Atteridgeville on Wednesday evening.
    The suspects were linked to several ATM bombings in Limpopo and Gauteng.
    The cache includes three assault rifles, more than 100 rounds of ammunition for different types of firearms and five 9mm pistols.
    The arms cache was discovered at a house apparently belonging to a South African National Defence Force (SANDF) member.
    "He was found in possession of R62, 000 in cash and police proceeded to search his premises and seized three rifles (two R 5 and an R4) with nine fully loaded magazines.
    Further investigation led police to a second suspect who was found in possession of five pistols and other equipment used to cover their crime tracks," Gauteng spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said in a statement.
    A two way radio, balaclavas and hand gloves were also seized.
    Police said four other gang members were still at large.
    The arms cache comes after police seized 18 firearms last weekend and arrested 23 suspects.
    "Everything possible will be done to make sure that ruthless criminals in this province will meet the justice that they deserve," said deputy provincial Commissioner for Detective Services, Major General Vincent Leshabane.

    I wonder what the press will call the safes of some Gunsite members if three rifles constitute a "massive arms cache". Still, good to recover these and even better to make the arrests. Best would be to secure convictions.

    Yes, this does highlight the futility of ammo restrictions.

    100 rounds is enough for plenty crime, while not quite enough for one IDPA match.

    more than 100 rounds of ammunition for different types of firearms
    ...
    with nine fully loaded magazines.
    Errrr... 9 x 30 (lets assume 30 instead of 35/40) = 230... guess that is more than 100... but c'mon!
