Lost or Stolen Weapons

Section 60 A provides for circumstances where an owner of a weapon loses or has stolen that weapon. The Act requires the loss be reported to the police as soon as they become aware that they are no longer in possession of the weapon. Fines can apply.

A person who owns or possesses a weapon that, while in the person’s ownership or possession, is, or apparently is, lost or stolen must report the loss or stealing to a police officer immediately the person becomes aware of the loss or stealing. Maximum penalty—10 penalty units.
