Man arrested, pistol seized following raid on Maylands house

POLICE have seized a pistol and a mobile phone jammer at a Maylands house after they apprehended a man who allegedly fired shots at a High Wycombe house over the weekend.

Midland Detectives executed a search warrant on a residence on Eighth Ave in Maylands yesterday and allegedly located and seized a Walther.22 repeater pistol, ammunition and a mobile phone jammer.

The warrant was conducted in relation to an incident on Newburn Road in High Wycombe on Saturday in which two men attended the residence and threatened a male occupant.

The men fired a number of shots at the front door and front of the house, before leaving in a dark-coloured sedan.

A 24-year-old Bayswater man will appear before Perth Magistrates Court today charged with endangering the life, health or safety of a person and committing an unlawful act or omission with intent to harm.

He was also charged with possessing a firearm with circumstances of aggravation, possessing ammunition without a license, possessing stolen or unlawfully obtained property and breach of bail.
