Yorketown man arrested in SA Police raids which uncovered two homemade weapons


A man has been arrested after the SA police have discovered a homemade 12-meter shotgun and a homemade rifle during raids across the Yorke peninsula.

Headed by the Swedish police dog Kingston, the officers fell down on a property in Yorketown on Monday when they uncovered the two homemade weapons.

One was a 12-gauge shotgun while the other was a .22 gun. Ammunition was also found in the home.

A 38-year-old Yorketown man was arrested and charged with possession of two prescribed and unregistered firearms, unsecured firearms without permission, possession of ammunition and violation of an intervention order.

He was denied political security and appeared in court on Tuesday via video link.

Further investigations led the SA police to another Yorke Peninsula property in Moonta, where officers discovered more ammunition.

A 30-year-old Moonta man was reported for possession of ammunition.
