A shock surprise for police finding a sub-machine gun during a vehicle stop at The Entrance, on the Central Coast last night.
Officers stopped a Holden Commodore on Oakland Avenue at 7.40pm, locating the MP40 sub-machine gun with a missing barrel in a bag along with a firearm magazine and 60 rounds of various ammunition.
An initial examination finding the gun is in working order.
A 40 year old male passenger was arrested and charged with a number of firearm offences and will front Wyong Local Court today.
The machine gun will now undergo testing to determine if it is linked to any shootings.
