Greyhound worker charged with unauthorised firearm possession

A man has been charged with possession of an unauthorised firearm following investigations into the deaths of numerous greyhounds.

The 69-year-old was charged yesterday following a tip off to police from a member of the public.

In a statement, NSW police said the “charges relate to the possession of a .22 calibre rifle between 2010 and 2013 in the state’s Central Hunter.”
