Charges laid over police weapons stash

A NSW Police Force employee has been charged over an alleged weapons stash that sparked a state-wide manhunt on the weekend.

The 38-year-old armourer handed himself in on Saturday after his photo and name were released to the media following raids on his Central Coast home.

Inside the home, police allegedly found firearms, firearm parts, ammunition of various calibres, machining equipment and prohibited weapons.

He was charged with a series of firearms offences including possession and unauthorised manufacture and refused bail.

The investigation is linked to the Thursday arrest of a father and son from Newcastle who were allegedly in possession of a machine gun, other weapons and thousands in cash.

More charges are expected to be laid.
