A 31-year-old man wanted on police warrant was arrested in alleged possession of an unregistered revolver and a pen pistol in Noble Park North.

The Hughesdale man was stopped by police officers as he walked along Galos Avenue on Monday 7 October, police say.

The man allegedly tried to escape on foot towards a nearby motorcycle, and was arrested.

His weapons were uncovered during a personal search, according to police.
