As a result, members of Serious Organised Crime Unit and
Firearms Services conducted a firearms inspection at an
address in Molesworth this morning.

firearms being located by police in the possession of a
person who did not have a firearms licence and the firearms
were not properly stored.
The firearms licence of the owner is now under review.
A 45 year old man will be charged via summons with
various firearms offences.
