A man has been arrested after a traffic stop in Seaton located ammunition and a stolen firearm.

About 2.15am on Friday 6 November, Western District patrols stopped a Toyota corolla sedan on Matthews Avenue at Seaton for a random driver test.

Police had cause to search the vehicle and they located an ice pipe, a shotgun cartridge and a firearm in the boot.  The sawn off shotgun had been stolen from a Yorke Peninsula address during a break-in back in 2011.

Further investigations led police to an address at Largs Bay.  A search of the home with the assistance of PD Indi resulted in police locating a number of shotgun cartridges, a small quantity of fireworks, a slingshot and a machete.

A 35-year-old man from Largs Bay was arrested and charged with possessing a firearm without a licence, possessing ammunition, two counts of carrying an offensive weapon and possessing a prohibited weapon.

He was refused police bail and will appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court today.
