A Rebels motorcycle gang
member has been arrested after a loaded gun was found in the boot of a car
in Adelaide's west, police say.
Detectives went to the Kilburn home about
8:30pm on Wednesday where they found the loaded sawn-off .22 calibre bolt
action rifle in the boot of a car.
The 50-year-old Kilburn man, a Rebels
motorcycle gang member, was arrested and charged with aggravated possession
of a firearm without a licence, breaching a firearm prohibition order and
breaching of bail.
A 24-year-old man from Blair Athol was
also arrested and charged with possession of a firearm.
Both men have been refused bail and will
appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court this afternoon.
Police are investigating possible links to
the firearm being stolen from a western suburbs home in 2014.
