Eleven properties were searched on Tuesday and seven people charged with a variety of offences, including unlawful possession of firearms, receiving stolen property, cultivation of cannabis, and theft.

"It is pleasing to be able to recover any firearm that is in the wrong hands, so to recover seven during these warrants is an outstanding result," said Detective Sergeant Karen Heald.
