ACT Policing detectives have seized a firearm, quantity of drugs and a sum of cash during a search warrant in Curtin yesterday (Wednesday, 13 November).

Acting on information received following the execution of a warrant in Kaleen last month in which a firearm was seized and a man charged, Criminal Investigations detectives executed a search warrant yesterday afternoon on a Curtin apartment.

During this warrant police seized a Winchester rifle, knives, a sum of cash and a quantity of illicit drugs suspected to be methylamphetamine.

A 32-year-old Curtin man was arrested following the warrant and taken to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with firearm and drug offences. He was bailed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court on Friday, November 29.

Detective Sergeant David Turner said this is another example of ACT Policing’s dedication to removing illicit firearms and drugs from Canberra streets.

Police urge anyone with information on illicit firearms or the manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Wot no ammo? Guns work better with it…


So, for those playing at home:

1. A “home invasion” in Curtin where a firearm is discharged into a door.

is followed by

2. A police raid of a home in Kaleen where guns and drugs are found

is followed by the above

3 A police raid of a home in Curtin where guns and drugs are found

The question I have is – are the homes in item 1 and item 3 the same?

I always feel better knowing these things aren’t entirely random act of f-wittery. Though at the time the CT stated that The court heard the accused in the Kaleen arrests had allegedly:

“…gone to the house of a drug dealer with two others, with the intention of committing a burglary. A detective told the court that McKee is suspected of shooting a bullet through the dealer’s front door, which then ricocheted into the home’s stairwell.” Read more of that article here.

Anyone else being reminded of 1998’s Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels?
