Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut said on Monday that there were no new developments to report. 

"The case is still under investigation," he confirmed.

A tip-off led officers attached to the provincial detective unit to a flat behind a house in Vryburger Street on Friday morning.

Two guns, two silencers, a telescope, numerous magazines and a "huge amount" of ammunition for various calibre firearms  including R1 and R5 rifles, 9mm and .45 handguns – were found during the search.

Military gear, training equipment, reloading equipment, Nazi flags and memorabilia were also seized.

Police said that while they had identified a person of interest, he had not yet been apprehended.
