A teenage boy has been arrested and charged after he was allegedly caught playing the pokies at a Griffith pub with a loaded bolt action rifle stashed down his pants.

Officers searched the teen and allegedly located a loaded and shortened .22 calibre bolt action rifle secreted in his pants.

The firearm was seized without incident and the man was placed under arrest.

He was taken to Griffith Police Station, where he was charged with a number of firearm-related offences and drug possession, before being refused bail to appear before Griffith Local Court today.
