WALKING sticks modified to conceal blades and firearms found during a search of a Kallaroo house yesterday prompted police to charge a 71-year-old man.

Clarkson Police Acting Senior Sergeant Darren Lumb said police attended a domestic incident in Hickory Road, Quinns Rocks about 1.05pm on June 10.

Sgt Lumb said a man (46) from the house had to be taken to Joondalup Health Campus and information provided by a woman at the house prompted police to get a firearms warrant for a Kallaroo property, home to the injured man’s father.

He said when police searched the Culwalla Close house yesterday evening, they found three walking sticks modified to conceal blades and two modified to become firearms.

“We sent those items to ballistics,” he said.

Police also found an air rifle, three homemade pistols, a flint lock pistol and ammunition at the property.

Sgt Lumb said they had charged a Kallaroo man (71), who had a military background, with allegedly possessing an unlicensed firearm, two counts of possessing unlicensed ammunition and three counts of possessing a prohibited weapon.

Pending results of the ballistics report on two of the walking sticks, Sgt Lumb said there could be further charges.
