Commercial explosives found: Main suspect is a senior police officer

In a posting yesterday, I wrote about a good cop killed in the line of duty.

Then this: “Police are still looking for the main suspect, said to be a senior police officer”.

A 70-year-old woman and her 14-year-old granddaughter have been arrested in Nogangile village outside Elliotdale in the Eastern Cape.

This after police found ammunition, commercial explosives and police uniforms hidden in her home.

Following a tip-off, police searched the woman's home and found two plastic boxes and a steel trunk. Inside was at least 60 rounds of ammunition for use in an assortment of rifles and pistols, complete sets of commercial explosive devices, including smoke grenades, and safety fuses with detonators.

Uniforms of the former Transkei police and the current police service were also found.

Police are still looking for the main suspect, said to be a senior police officer.
