An Ingleburn man will appear in court today charged after a firearm and weapons were allegedly seized from a vehicle in Liverpool yesterday.
About 2.15pm (December 8), officers attached to Liverpool City Police Area Command's Proactive Crime Team attended a licenced premise on the Hume Highway, Liverpool, to conduct a business inspection.
Upon arrival, police stopped a Kia Cerato in the car park for a random breath test, in which the male driver provided a negative result.
Officers noticed the driver allegedly attempting to conceal an object under the driver's seat. Police opened the door of the vehicle and allegedly found a folding knife stored in the side of the door.
Following a search of the vehicle, officers allegedly located a torch that had been modified into a firearm, an electric stun device and ammunition contained inside a cigarette packet.
The 28-year-old was arrested and taken to Liverpool Police Station where he was charged with driving a motor vehicle during disqualification period, custody of knife in public place, possessing an unauthorised prohibited firearm, possessing a prohibited weapon without a permit and possessing ammunition without holding a licence/permit/authority.
The man was refused bail to appear before Liverpool Local court today.
