A 45-year-old man from South Lismore will be charged with nine firearm offences after police found three unregistered guns at his home on June 11.

Acting on a tip-off that there were unregistered firearms and ammunition at the property, police conducted a raid that evening and found a semi-automatic rifle with magazine, a 12-gauge single-barrel pump-action shotgun and an air rifle.

Bullets, shotgun rounds and pellets were also seized.

Police say the owner had an expired firearms licence. The guns and ammunition were seized and the man will be issued with a Future Court Attendance Notice.
