Seven rifles, a revolver, a pistol, a double barrel shotgun along with in excess 3,000 rounds of ammunition and an amount of gun powder

ACT Policing has seized a number of firearms along with ammunition following a warrant executed at a residence in Fisher yesterday (Thursday, May 28).

Acting on information received from the public, members from Woden General Duties executed the search warrant where a number of items were seized. 

Those items included seven rifles, a revolver, a pistol, a double barrel shotgun along with in excess 3,000 rounds of ammunition and an amount of gun powder.

Police identified that the resident had been a NSW licenced firearms holder, however his licence had since been revoked.

A 70-year-old man was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with offences relating to the seized items and given Watch House bail. He will face the ACT Magistrate’s Court at a later date.
