Police from the New England Local Area Command have appealed for information into the theft of two guns from a Tenterfield property last week.
Officers say last Friday, August 23, a 28-year-old man removed two guns from his safe on a Bruxner Highway property and placed them into the front of his car which was parked in an open garage.
The man was intending to go shooting that evening however his plans changed and he allegedly left the firearms in the car, covered them with a blanket and locked the car.
The following morning, the man returned to the shed and saw his car had been entered and the two rifles were missing.
Police were called and attended the scene and investigations are continuing.
Anyone who can assist police in their investigation should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
