Johannesburg - One of the country's most wanted criminals was arrested on Thursday in possession of more than 300 guns, ammunition and explosives at his home in Norwood, north of Johannesburg, national police commissioner Riah Phiyega said.
"The person we were pursuing today controls a huge syndicate and is also on our list of most wanted," she said.
Phiyega was at the scene in Norwood.
The man, his daughter and their domestic helper were arrested. They are aged between 26 and 53.
Police found R1 rifles, R4 rifles, R5 rifles, AK-47 rifles and about 300 handguns.
Detonators, a machine used to manufacture ammunition, packaged dagga and explosives used for ATM bombings were also found.
"I cannot say at this stage exactly how many guns are here. What I can say is that they are in their hundreds and they were found concealed in containers."
Phiyega said police would investigate the origin of the arms and ammunition, their intended use, and whether any of them had been used to commit an offence.
She congratulated the team of officers involved in the operation.
"I am very pleased with the result and I want to encourage them to continue with the hard work."
