Firearms, stolen vehicles found in Yass police raid

Firearms and stolen vehicles have been uncovered by police in Yass, after a carjacking in Tumblong last month.

NSW detectives, using a police dog, searched a home in Yass on Wednesday, where a caravan allegedly stolen from Binalong in April was found.

Inside the caravan, police found a .410 single-barrel shotgun and ammunition. They then found a double-barrel shotgun and two .22 calibre rifles inside a horse truck on the property.

A 2012 Toyota Hilux utility and a trailer, both allegedly stolen, were also found on the property.

It will be alleged a 33-year-old man tried to hide the utility in bushland. He has been charged with illegal use of a conveyance and hindering police. He has been refused bail, and was due in Goulburn Local Court on Thursday.

A 30-year-old man has been charged with aggravated carjacking and was granted a conditional bail to appear at Gundagai Local Court next month.
