ACT Policing executed three simultaneous search warrants in Kambah and Wanniassa this morning (Friday, August 16).
Around 6am Criminal Investigations detectives and the Specialist Response Group attended two premises in Sternberg Crescent, Wanniassa and a residence in Hardwick Place Kambah and executed search warrants.
The warrants are directly related to an incident which occurred last week in which bullet rounds were fired into a tattoo parlour in Gungahlin.
An appeal at the time by police for witnesses and information was successful, and police made a further appeal yesterday for information in relation to a dark coloured utility seen in the area and at the time of the Gungahlin incident.
