This man wanted to bring a gun to the cop shop with him

Last Saturday, 25 April 2015, around 5.10pm, Police say a man was arrested on an outstanding warrant in Waggrakine.

Whilst Police were in the process of detaining the male, Police say requested for his possessions to accompany him to the Police station. 

Sounds innocent enough. But what was in the bag was not what you'd usually bring to the Police station.  

Geraldton Police say that within the accused’s bag that he requested to accompany him, they found a .22 calibre firearm that had all identifying markings removed.

The firearm was secured and seized.

A 36 year old male from Bluff Point will appear in the Geraldton Magistrate’s Court on a charge of Possess Unlicensed Firearm.
