WATCH: Police uncover gun used in Gold Coast tavern robbery

Police have located a firearm believed to have been used in the terrifying armed robbery of a tavern at Ormeau two years ago.

Three men, who have since been charged over the robbery, stormed the Norfolk Tavern moments before it closed around 3.30am on April 27, 2019.

The trio fired a shot through the front glass doors, forcing it to shatter, before ransacking the tills and pokie machines.

The group then made their escape in a stolen vehicle which was later found burnt out at Tamborine.

As part of investigations into firearm offences, police yesterday executed a search warrant at a Yarrabilba home where they discovered a sawn off .22 calibre rifle in a backpack.

The firearm was rendered safe before being seized by officers, with a 32-year-old woman arrested at the home and charged with unlawful possession of a weapon.

She is due to appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court on July 9.

Police say the same firearm was also allegedly used in the armed robbery of a tavern at Beenleigh on April 4, 2019.

Investigations are ongoing.
