About 4.30pm on May 2, 2016 police from Richmond Local Area Command attended a home in Durheim Road at Monaltrie.
The officers were unable to locate a resident and so checked the rear door clearly observing several firearms.

The firearms were seized by police.
Lismore detectives charged the owner, a 71-year-old man with unlawful possession of unregistered firearms, not ensuring the safe keeping of firearms and unlawful possession of ammunition.
