Cache of guns, drugs, at home

POLICE have found a cache of weapons, ammunition and drugs in an early-morning drug raid.

Officers from the Central Victorian Response Unit raided a home on Wednesday.

Acting Senior Sergeant Roland Kurzke said officers seized a sawn-off .22 rifle, ammunition, pepper spray, imitation firearms, a machete, swords and a stun gun.

Police also found ice, cannabis, and evidence of drug dealing, he said.

A 23-year-old man at the Akoonah Drive property had been charged with trafficking a drug of dependence, trafficking and possessing a drug of dependence, and weapons offences.

“He has been charged with trafficking ice and possession of ice and cannabis,” Acting Senior Sergeant Kurzke said.

“He was also charged with prohibited weapons offences. 

"We did find evidence of trafficking.”

Acting Senior Sergeant Kurzke said the man had been at the Golden Square home at the time of the raid.

“It was good to get the weapons off the street,” he said. 

It's not known what quantity of drugs was seized, but Acting Senior Sergeant Kurzke said it was "a small amount". 

The man has been bailed to the Bendigo Magistrates Court on May 1.
