POLICE and customs officials have allegedly seized guns and explosives after raiding an Adamstown house yesterday.
The joint operation began in April when customs allegedly found a firearm stock destined for a Newcastle business.
They raided a Gosford Road home and allegedly seized a replica semi-automatic pistol, a prohibited knife, a stun gun, three homemade explosives, and a substance suspected of being drugs.
A 35-year-old man was later charged with two counts of possessing a prohibited weapon without a permit and one count of possessing an unauthorised firearm, goods in custody, intentionally importing ‘tier 2’ goods without a permit, and handling an unauthorised explosive.
He was granted bail to face Newcastle Local Court on August 7.
