Police have arrested four men, seizing weapons, drugs and cash following warrants across several suburbs in Melbourne’s south-east this morning.

The warrants were executed by detectives from the Echo Taskforce, Frankston Crime Investigation Unit, Mornington Divisional Response Unit and Southern Metro Regional Crime Team at residential properties in Hallam, Pakenham, Frankston and Berwick, as well as an OMCG clubhouse in Cranbourne West.

The warrants formed part of an investigation in relation to illicit firearms possession and an aggravated carjacking which occurred on 19 February in Shaxton Circle, Frankston.

During that incident it’s believed a group of males assaulted two victims before stealing their vehicles.

The victims sustained minor injuries and did not receive medical treatment.

The men currently in custody are:

• A 25-year-old man from Hallam, a 25-year-old man from Frankston and a 20-year-old man from Adelaide all arrested at the Hallam address; and

• A 19-year-old man from Yarrawonga arrested at a Mount Eliza address.

Police also seized a number of items at the Hallam address including a loaded sawn-off shotgun, ammunition, drugs, cash, a stolen KTM motorcycle and a stolen Nissan 4WD.

The group are expected to be charged with a range of offences including assault, aggravated carjacking, possession of prohibited firearms, drug and theft related matters.

All four will appear before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court this evening.
