Man, 39, charged in Hunter over alleged plan to sell six guns to person subject to Firearm Prohibition Order

A man has been charged over an alleged plan to supply firearms to a person subject to restrictions in the Hunter last year.

The 39-year-old was due to face court on Thursday after he was charged on Wednesday with six counts of supplying a firearm to an unauthorised person.

Police allege the 39-year-old planned to sell six guns to a person subject to a Firearms Prohibition Order.

It comes after Strike Force Nudurr was established in November, 2016, to investigate firearm possession and supply in the Hunter.

Investigators charged a 43-year-old man in March, 2017, after they allegedly uncovered a plan during a raid on a property at Eugowra, in the state’s central west, to obtain firearms to on-sell.

The 43-year-old remains before the court.

Inquiries are continuing.
