A 43-year-old man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (Monday, May 7) after ACT Policing executed a search warrant on his Curtin residence last night.
The search warrant was executed in response to an incident on Saturday, May 5, where a Domino’s delivery driver was threatened with what appeared to be a handgun.
The alleged offender was arrested last night following a search warrant involving police from Criminal Investigations and Specialist Response and Security.
ACT Policing seized a number of items as evidence, including clothing and a replica handgun. A quantity of illicit substances believed to be cannabis, heroin and amphetamines was also found and seized.
The man was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with unauthorised possession or use of a prohibited firearm, possession of offensive weapon with intent, possession of drug of dependence and possession of prohibited substance.
