A loaded gun has been found in the possession of a 34-year-old man police in Perth have arrested over the weekend shooting of four cars as they were driven along a suburban street.

Western Australian police say public tip-offs helped identify the Thornlie man, who is believed to be responsible for the incident at Beechboro on Saturday morning when four cars were shot at as they were driven along Beechboro Road North.

Police say they located the vehicle involved in the shootings and arrested the man shortly afterwards at around 8pm on Sunday. The man is due to face Perth Magistrates Court on Monday.
