Gunning for trouble at fishing spot

In Northern Territory

A MAN has been summonsed by police for firing a gun at a popular fishing spot.

Water Police officers summonsed the 32 year-old man for firearm offences following reports of anti-social behaviour at Shady Camp.

Senior Sergeant Paul Faustmann said police had conducted patrols of the area in response to public information.

“The information received in this case assisted police to apprehend a group of males who were creating a disturbance by unlawfully discharging a firearm. The .22 magnum rifle and ammunition has been seized by police,” said Snr Sgt Faustmann.

Senior Sergeant Faustmann said the man has been charged with possessing an unregistered firearm, discharging a firearm in a public place and possessing a firearm without a valid licence.

A 30 year-old man also received a drug infringement notice after he was found to be in possession of a small amount of cannabis.

“This sort of behaviour is dangerous, illegal and will not be tolerated,” he said.

Senior Sergeant Faustmann said people should report any anti-social behaviour, including illegal fishing, the harming of wildlife or dangerous behaviour to Police on 131 444.

Members of the public can also report anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Fish Watch on 1800 891 136.
