A 35-year-old man will face court today (4 July) after he allegedly broke into a residence on CSIRO land and stole guns and ammunition.

Police allege that a number of firearms and ammunition were stolen from a residence on CSIRO land in northern Canberra between last Friday and Saturday (28 – 29 June).

After investigating the incident, ACT Policing executed a search warrant on a residence in Giralang yesterday afternoon (3 July).

During this warrant, police found a number of firearms and ammunition believed to be the items stolen from the CSIRO, as well as an amount of cannabis.

A 35-year-old man was arrested and has been charged with unauthorised possession of firearms, burglary, theft and drug possession.

An old clunker air rifle.
In most countries in the world, this would not even be considered to be a firearm.
