Man charged over firearms thefts
A man has been charged after a number of firearms were recovered at Nunamara, in Northern Tasmania.
Police recovered 11 firearms and a quantity of ammunition on a rural property in May, which were found to have been stolen during six separate burglaries in the Northern District between 2018 and 2022.
During a subsequent property search, police recovered a further two stolen firearms.
A 29-year-old Waverley man was arrested as a result of the investigation.
The Waverley man has been formally charged with a number of firearms-related and family violence offences.
He will appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court at a later date.
