Gold Coast man charged after police seize gun, knuckledusters and drugs

A man is set to front court today, after police found a number of weapons at a property on the Gold Coast.

Officers from the Gold Coast Major and Organised Crime Squad executed a search warrant at an address in Hope Island yesterday, where they found a handgun, knuckledusters and a small quantity of a restricted drug (Melanotan).

A 29-year-old was arrested at the scene, and police seized the weapons.


The man’s since been charged with unlawfully possessing weapons and possessing a restricted drug.

He’s also been charged with contravening an order about information necessary to access information stored electronically.

The offender will appear in Southport Magistrate Court today.

“This seizure highlights the ongoing investigations our officers continually undertake to make the local community a safer place,” Detective Inspector Craig McGrath said.
