A man has been charged after allegedly producing a firearm during an altercation at a fast food restaurant in North St Marys.
About 8am on Saturday, September 14 a 41-year-old man entered a drive-thru at the restaurant.
Another vehicle pulled up beside the man’s car and an argument ensued.
The occupants got out of their vehicle and began to approach the man.
Allegedly the man then produced a firearm, before a physical altercation took place.
“The pistol was not discharged during the melee,” a Police spokesperson said.
“Officers from Nepean Police Area Command arrived a short time after and arrested the man.”
During a subsequent search of the man and his vehicle, police located an unloaded 9mm pistol and a small quantity of ‘ice’.
The 41-year-old man was arrested at the scene and taken to St Marys Police Station.
He was charged with ‘possess unregistered firearm-pistol’, ‘not keep firearm safely-pistol’, ‘possess prohibited drug’, and ‘drive motor vehicle during disqualification period’.
The Stanhope Gardens man was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Bail Court, where he was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Blacktown Local Court next week.
