Police make dangerous discovery at Rockhampton business

BREAKING 12.15PM: DETECTIVES are responding to a Rockhampton business following the discovery of a bag containing weapons.

Initial reports suggest general duties police crews have requested the Criminal Investigation Branch attend a business on Victoria Parade after a bag containing leg irons (a metal band or chain placed around a prisoner's ankle as a restraint) and a possible firearm was found.

It is unclear how the bag came to be at the business.

More to come.
