A 29-year-old man and 16-year-old girl were found in possession of drugs and a gun early Wednesday morning at a park in Windsor.
Police officers arrived at Macquarie Park to arrest the man who had failed to appear in court on sexual assault and kidnapping charges.
The man and the teenage girl were found in a tent and allegedly struggled with the police before being arrested. Police found a starter pistol in the tent along with a small amount of what they believe to be the drug Ice.
Hawksbury Duty Officer, Inspector Garry Sims, said: “We urge any member of the public to contact us through crime stoppers if they have any information that could assist us in removing unauthorised firearms from the country. We consider all firearms offenses as extremely serious.”
Both will appear in court on Thursday March 2 charged with possession of an unauthorised pistol and prohibited drugs, resisting police and additional outstanding warrants.
