Two Vic men charged, 18 guns, drugs seized


Two men are behind bars after police seized 18 guns in Melbourne, as well as cash, the drug ice and chemicals linked to drug manufacturing.

A Deer Park man, 45, and a 32-year-old Glen Waverly man were charged with drug and firearm offences, and dealing with the proceeds of crime, at an out-of-sessions hearing on Sunday.

The pair have been remanded in custody.

Police say they found one gun, a silencer, and the drug ice while searching the men's car after they were pulled over in Wallan about 5am on Sunday.

Officers then searched a Springvale factory, where they found 13 firearms and what is believed to be precursor chemicals.

Police found a further four guns and a large amount of cash at a home in Deer Park.

Two women, both Korean nationals, were also being questioned, Victoria Police said in a statement.

The men will appear before the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Monday.
