Government contractor charged over alleged guns, explosives haul at Roleystone home

A security scare was sparked when police discovered a stockpile of explosives, ammunition and military grade weapons at a Roleystone property.A government contractor allegedly found with hundreds of kilograms of explosives, guns, ammunition and military-grade weapons stashed at his Roleystone home has been charged with several weapons offences.

Bruce Fagan is expected to face court on February 13 on 11 charges relating to guns he had allegedly been handed for disposal but had instead stockpiled, as well as failing to properly secure firearms and keep adequate records.

It is understood the charges do not relate to weapons that he collected under government contracts.

Several government agencies are investigating the activities of the 68-year-old since police found the arsenal last month.

Mr Fagan is a dangerous-goods security cardholder and licensed to have unsupervised access to explosives and high-risk substances, police said.
