As part of an investigation, police seized two motor vehicle yesterday, Tuesday 17 August. The cars were searched today and police allegedly located seven rounds of ammunition in a hidden compartment inside one of the vehicles.

Police subsequently attended a Hyde Park address and arrested a 35-year-old Para Vista man and charged him with possess insecure ammunition.

He was refused police bail and will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court tomorrow, Thursday 19 August.

Detective Chief Inspector David Scutchings, Officer in Charge, Crime Gangs Task Force, said, “SAPOL are committed to investigating firearms offences involving members and associates of Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.

“While police will allege this person is a member of the Comanchero Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, this arrest is not directly related to Operation Ironside.

“This offending is yet another example of the propensity shown by OMCG members to arm themselves. Of concern to police is that the seizure of two types of ammunition would indicate that there are a number of outstanding firearms that are yet to be located.
