A a pistol, rifle and ammunition have been seized from a Merrylands man who is allegedly an associate of the Hells Angels outlaw motorcycle gang.
On Tuesday, the NSW Police Force’s Firearms Registry revoked a 22-year-old man’s firearm licence after he was deemed not suitable to hold one.
About 1.30pm on Thursday, Gang Squad investigators attended the man’s residence in Paton Street in Merrylands and seized a .22 calibre pistol, an 8mm bolt-action rifle and ammunition.
Police will allege the ammunition was not stored as required, and as a result the man will be issued with a Field Court Attendance Notice for not complying with ammunition storage requirements.
Strike Force Raptor was established by State Crime Command’s Gangs Squad in 2009 to target outlaw motorcycle gangs and any associated criminal enterprises.
