Trio charged over armed home invasion at Millmerran
THREE people have been charged over a home invasion at Millmerran during which a number of firearms were stolen.
Five longarm firearms were stolen and attempts were made to steal a second gun safe with weapons inside when the trio allegedly stormed a Mill Rd home at Millmerran on Monday.
Two men were allegedly armed with handguns, South West District Detective Inspector Mat Kelly said.
Inspector Kelly said a 30-year-old man was arrested in Dalby yesterday following investigations into the incident.
A further search warrant was executed in Cambooya where police will allege firearms were recovered.
Inspector Kelly said a woman, 19, and man, 22, were taken into custody in relation to the Millmerran offence.
The trio has been charged with enter dwelling with intent to commit an indictable offence, deprivation of liberty, demanding property with menace, armed robbery in company, and unlawful possession of weapons.
"Five longarms were inside one safe," Inspector Kelly said.
"Forensic evidence left behind at the scene and assistance from the community helped in solving this heinous offence."
The five firearms have been recovered by police.
"This is a great result for the community," Inspector Kelly said.
The trio is due to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court today where police will object to any bail applications.
Investigations into the incident are continuing.
