A huge stash of unregistered firearms has been discovered on a Tenterfield property after a cross-border police operation.
New South Wales Police Force’s Firearms Squad executed a search warrant at a property at Tenterfield, about 7.20am yesterday, Wednesday 20 September.
The search warrant related to a Queensland Police Service investigation and was executed on their behalf.
During the search police located and seized 73 longarms, a crudely-manufactured .22 calibre bolt-action pistol, a replica revolver, and 200 rounds of ammunition of various calibres.
Police also searched a vehicle at the location, where they located and seized three further firearms, one of which was loaded.
None of the firearms are believed to be registered and not being safely stored.
A 67-year-old man was spoken to at the location and his firearms licence has been suspended pending further inquiries.
