POLICE BRIEFS: Weapons charges, missing wallabies

Posted on 17/05/2019 by

TWO men have been refused bail after a gun and knives were found in their car at Adamstown on Saturday night.

Police had been searching for a Nissan Skyline they believed had been involved in a number of pursuits in recent days when they stopped a vehicle of a similar description at 8.30pm.

Officers found the firearm and knives before arresting and charging two men aged 22 and 21 with possessing those items.

They were refused bail to face Newcastle Local Court on Monday.

POLICE are investigating whether a number of wallabies that were kept at the University of Newcastle were stolen or released by vandals.

Police were called to the Callaghan campus on Saturday afternoon after reports that an enclosure had been broken into and a number of birds and wallabies were missing.

Some wallabies returned to the enclosure, but some remain outstanding.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newcastle police on 4929 0999.
