Old, sawn-off shotgun is hidden in shelving

POLICE are investigating after a sawn-off shotgun was discovered hidden in the leg of a shelf.

The shotgun was discovered after a Stradbroke woman bought shelving at a clearing Sale on May 12 at a Longford property, and it fell out of the leg of one of the shelves as it was being moved.

The woman, who asked not to be named, said she immediately handed the shotgun in to Sale police.

Police Sgt Tony Goodsell said the weapon was quite rusted, and police were “making further enquiries”.
