ACT Policing today arrested a 25-year-old man after a disturbance in Gordon late on Wednesday night in which a firearm was discharged.
The man was arrested on possession of drugs, ammunition and prohibited weapons after a search warrant was executed on his Gordon residence this afternoon (Friday, October 12).
Police were called to Gordon just after midnight on Wednesday after reports of a disturbance in Jim Pike Avenue. At this time, the nature of the disturbance was not revealed. Two damaged vehicles were found in the driveway of a house in Jim Pike Avenue, but no persons of interest located.
Police returned to the area yesterday (Thursday, October 11) when neighbours across the road from the previous disturbance located a bullet lodged in the exterior wall of their Gordon house.
AFP Forensic crime scene investigators attended and removed the bullet for examination.
As a result of further inquiries, police executed a search warrant on two residences, one in Gordon and another in Conder. The drugs, ammunition and prohibited weapons were located in Gordon and a crow bar believed to be used to damage the two vehicles, located in Conder. No firearms were recovered.
The 25-year-old Gordon man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House where he was charged and will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow.
Police are urging anyone who may have seen or heard any suspicious noises or activity in Jim Pike Avenue Gordon late on Wednesday evening (October 10) to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.
