Remember that massive weapons cache uncovered on the East Rand?

Police ‘incompetence’ exposed!
An apparent knee-jerk reaction and poor investigation has landed egg on the police’s faces.
In January, the police arrested retired brigadier Jack van Zyl Roux for being in possession of what was labelled one of the biggest weapons caches ever found in Gauteng.
However, Beeld newspaper is reporting Roux was sentenced on Wednesday for having only one antique rifle.
Roux admitted in court to possessing an old unlicensed rifle and was sentenced to two years in jail, suspended for five years.
Roux was arrested at his home where police recovered 36 firearms and ammunition.
On the day, the police declined to give any information as they waited for police chief General Bheki Cele to personally brief the media on what was believed to be a huge success.
Standing among the weapons and ammunition, Cele praised crime intelligence officers for their work and warned that Roux may have links to rhino poaching syndicates and other organised crime.
Now it appears Roux was arrested and detained before police did any of their homework.

Bwahaha, Epic Fail! :D

I saw this on that crime watch program... there was a giant swastika on the wall and the old SA flag.
Tonnes of guns and ammo lying around.

So why is he only being charge for the one gun ?

Many people have collectors liscences and have many weapons
when they see the weapons in civillian hands they definetly dont like that , not the first time they have failed so badly
Many people have militaria collections and a genuine swastica flag is very valuable
