A man will face a string of charges after he was allegedly caught on a stolen quad bike with a fully loaded sawn-off firearm, ammunition, cash and drugs in Rockingham last night.

Police patrolling the Rockingham area last night spotted the 31-year-old man riding an unlicensed quad bike along Safety Bay Road about 8.30pm.

The man managed to elude police, but they had called in the police chopper to track the man’s movements until they finally located him at a service station on Read Street.

The man was allegedly attempting to car jack a vehicle parked at a bowser when police apprehended him.

Police allege the man was in possession of a fully, loaded sawn-off firearm, ammunition and a quantity of drugs and cash.

Police also allege the quad bike was stolen in a burglary in the area earlier that day.

The man will face Rockingham Magistrates Court on Monday on 15 charges related to the incident.
