POLICE detectives searched a house in Isabella Plains on Friday as part of their investigation into gunshots fired at a tattoo parlour last month, and confiscated three illegal guns along with substances suspected to be cannabis, ecstasy and methylamphetamine.
After the raid, police confirmed that none of the three unlicensed firearms seized by detectives on Friday were used to shoot at the “Tatts On Tatts Off” shop on Anthony Rolfe Avenue in Gungahlin on August 5.
As part of the same investigation, police raided two other houses in Tuggeranong, one of which is reportedly used as a clubhouse by the Rebels motorcycle gang, on August 16, but no arrests were made and no firearms were confiscated.
Detective Sergeant Anthony Brown said the seizure was “an example of ACT Policing’s dedication to removing illicit firearms from Canberra streets”.
“Criminal Investigations detectives are continuing to work hard to ensure illicit firearms are taken off the streets as the highest priority,” Detective Sergeant Brown said.
Investigations into the incident at Tatts On Tatts Off are ongoing.
