Police seize cannabis plants, unregistered guns

A MAN has been charged with weapon and drug offences after police searched a rural property west of Toowoomba last month.

Officers from the Toowoomba Major and Organised Crime Squad (Rural) located four unregistered firearms, ammunition and 32 cannabis plants while searching a property in Flinton, near St George, on October 27.

A 52-year-old Flinton man was charged with four counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of explosives without authority, producing dangerous drugs, and possession of a drug utensil.

Detective Senior Sergeant Trevor Stephens said these efforts demonstrated the "anytime, anywhere" mantra police had towards tackling illicit drugs and weapon-related offences.

"Every unlicensed weapon we take off the street makes the community safer," he said.

"Consequently, we will be unrelenting in our efforts. We continue to seek community information to assist in targeting these offenders."

The 52-year-old Flinton man will appear in the Dalby Magistrates Court on November 20.
