Neil Mitchell believes a high-ranking police officer has been suspended for allegedly possessing illegal firearms.
Sources told 3AW Mornings the superintendent’s house was raided, and that a pistol and rifle were found.
“I am told neither was registered,” Neil Mitchell said. “And I’m told the superintendent does not have a gun licence.”
3AW Mornings believes the raid was organised by the state’s anti-corruption body, IBAC, regarding an unrelated matter.
If the allegations are proven, it does not tarnish the whole force. But, at a time police command are chasing illegal firearms down every second borrow, it would be immensely embarrassing.
Victoria Police are not having a good run at the moment.
Victoria Police later confirmed a superintendent “from a corporate support area has been suspended with pay in relation to allegations of firearm and weapons offences on 5 June 2018”.
