A rifle with a sniper scope was seized from a vehicle during a traffic stop in Gowrie late last night (June 10).
ACT Policing officers had been on patrol in Gowrie around 11.30pm and had seized the rifle after executing a routine traffic stop on a blue Holden Commodore. The driver of the vehicle was not licensed for the firearm.
The driver of the vehicle will be summonsed to court at a later date on a firearms charge and investigations are ongoing.
