Woman arrested for firearms possession – Firearms Squad

Firearms Squad detectives have arrested a woman for firearm possession after investigations into the alleged theft of guns by two men impersonating police officers in the Hunter region last year.

About 8.30am on Wednesday 29 October 2014, a property owner at Clarence Town was approached by two men at his home who purported to be plain clothes police officers.

Detectives were told two revolvers were stolen from the premises, with those firearms recovered during a search warrant at Mayfield East the following day.

Three men, aged 28, 29 and 32, remain before the court on related charges.

Yesterday morning (Monday 29 June 2015), Firearms Squad detectives arrested a 30-year-old woman at Waratah Police Station.

She was charged with two counts of possessing an unauthorised pistol and granted conditional bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court on Thursday 6 August 2015.
