Two men have been arrested after a loaded firearm was found in a vehicle during a random traffic stop at Whyalla Norrie.

Officers had reason to search the stopped vehicle, locating a backpack on the rear seat containing a loaded 22 calibre sawn off rifle and ammunition.

Checks on the firearm revealed that it was reported stolen from a Whyalla business in 2016.

Both a 23-year-old man from Whyalla Stuart and a 34-year-old man from Whyalla Norrie were arrested and charged with numerous offences.

Both men were refused police bail and appeared in the Whyalla Magistrates Court later on Tuesday.
