Man to face court over stolen weapons

Man to face court over stolen weapons

A 40-year old man will appear in Darwin Magistrates Court today, after he was arrested on Saturday for being in possession of weapons stolen from an Australian Navy Ship.

A dozen semi-automatic pistols and 2 pump-action shot guns were stolen from the armoury of a naval patrol boat on Thursday, where it was moored at the HMAS Coonawarra, near Darwin’s CBD.

But all weapons were recovered, when police arrested the 40-year-old over the weekend and he will now face court for a number of charges, including possession of prohibited firearms.
