Port Kennedy Search Nets More Weapons, Drugs, and Cash

ROCKINGHAM Detectives have called the seizure of weapons, drugs and cash from a Port Kennedy home a “significant” result.

Detectives executed a search warrant on a Port Kennedy home on Friday, June 19 and discovered a number of stolen and unlicensed firearms, a quantity of methamphetamines and cash.

Three rifles, two shot guns, two hand guns and an air gun were seized, with a number of the firearms believed to be stolen.

Police also seized 100g of methamphetamine valued at about $100,000, and a further $150,000 in cash.

Detective Constable Gavin Gourgaud said inquiries were ongoing, but detectives searched the home after a tip off from a member of the public.

A 28-year-old Secret Harbour man has been questioned and detectives expect to charge him with a number of offences, including possession of a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply.

The same man remains in custody after being charged with a string of offences last Friday following a similar search on his Smith Break, Secret Harbour home.

In that instance, police were investigating an unlawful wounding incident that took place on June 2, and a shooting incident on June 7.

During the search of the man’s home they located and seized a homemade semi-automatic-style firearm loaded with 9mm ammunition, about 2.6g of methylamphetamine, 29.4g of cannabis and a sum of cash.

Det Snr Const Gourgaud urged any member of the public with information relating to drugs or firearms to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or police.
