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.
