Officers from Taskforce Raptor were part of a raid on a Dum Dum property on Friday (October 12) that resulted in a man being detained on multiple firearm and drug charges.

The raid action part of a cross border operation into outlaw motor cycle gangs, with simultaneous raids being conducted in Queensland.

About 10.50am police executed a firearm prohibition order and a weapon prohibition order on the property.

During the search police allegedly located a quantity of what they describe as ‘green vegetable matter’ which they claim is cannabis, together with a BB gun, a 12-gauge shotgun ammunition, a laser pointer, a set of handcuffs, a sawn-off air rifle, a number of seeds believed to be cannabis seeds, a spring-loaded flick knife and a black coloured plastic pistol capable of firing projectiles.

A 21-year-old male was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with multiple firearm and drug charges.

He was refused Bail and appeared at Tweed Heads Local Court on October 13, where he was released on conditional bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday (October 15).
