A man is due in court after a loaded shotgun, gloves and face covering were seized when he was stopped in a street at Rosehill yesterday.
Police from Rosehill Local Area Command stopped the man on Hassall Street, Rosehill, about 5.15pm (Saturday 18 March 2017); however, when he was told police were going to search his backpack, he allegedly tried to run away.
When the man was searched, police will allege it contained a loaded sawn-off shotgun, more ammunition, a mask and gloves.
The 39-year-old man was arrested and taken to Parramatta Police Station where he was charged with nine offences:
• Possess shortened firearm
• Possess loaded firearm
• Possess unauthorised firearm in a public place
• Possess ammunition
• Armed with intent
• Intimidate police (two counts)
• Possess prescribed restricted substance
• Assault police.
The man, from Merrylands, was refused bail and will appear in Parramatta Bail Court later today (Sunday 19 March 2017).
