A man has been charged after he allegedly used the internet to threaten to kill NSW Police Minister David Elliott.

Detectives from the fixated persons unit started investigating on Sunday following reports Mr Elliott, 49, had received threatening messages online.

A home in Belmont, in the state's Hunter region, was then raided on Monday afternoon.

Cannabis, medication without a prescription, two gel blasters and ammunition were found during the search and seized for forensic examination.

A 25-year-old man was arrested at the home.

He was charged with using a carriage service to threaten to kill and possessing drugs and firearms.

He was granted bail to appear at Belmont Local Court in July.
