A 53-year-old Labrador man has been charged with firearm and drug offences.

He is due to front Southport Magistrates Court on March 8.

Detective Superintendent Brendan Smith said police will continue to target serious offences particularly involving the illegal firearm trade.

“The selling of illegal firearms can lead to them being used in the commission of other serious or violent crimes which is why we will maintain our focus on those involved and bring them before the courts,” Det Supt Smith said.
