Police are on the hunt for possible suspects after they dug up an arms cache buried among the dead at a cemetery in Kleinvlei.

According to police, the discovery came following an intelligence-driven operation between various SAPS operational units at a graveyard in Kleinvlei at around 8pm.

In a bag buried in a grave, police found a Mowzer hunting rifle with a telescope, a .22 silencer, one smoke grenade, one stun grenade, seven detonators, three R4 magazines, 67 R1 rounds, 14 30/06 rounds and two BME Megamite 29 cartridges with two connector caps wrapped in a Zimbabwean newspaper.
