Much embarrasment is ensuing from the RAN as we speak. Most of those weapons will be in the hands of bikies within a week.

Well it if were bikies, they seem to have at least on well trained member. Must be easier ways to get the sort of weapons they want though. Maybe someone just wanted to have a nice gun collection :)

Am I to take it that they only had one person on board, and that the weapons locker was either unlocked, or the key in the posession of the young boy on guard duty?

Police are looking for a flat bed car recovery truck seen near the yard.The driver who is a well known crim and should not be approached.
Strewth, wonder if we know anyone who matches that description cobber??? ;-)

No problem if they get caught. They can always claim that they were only taking them as souvenirs, and were going to have them mounted and presented to the bike club as trophies..... It seems to work over here anyway.

Someone should be busted for leaving a "kid" on guard , same as the Iran fcukup with the RN .

The "kid" as you put it is probably the same age as British soldiers shooting people in Afghanistan. You and joeprivate ought to know better.

any chance the weapons will be found in the home of an SF member, who will then claim to have no knowledge of them and get away scott free?

Thats my point , Matelots are a different breed , I doubt the thief would have got past an armed bootneck/Infantryman.

Did they get away with any i-pods?
Standards are clearly slipping. Took a whole 42 minutes for that to be raised.

Anyhoo, a real crock and no doubt lessons will be learned etc.etc. but make of this what you will:

"A Northern Territory Police spokesman said a crewman on board was assaulted and tied up before the intruder broke into the boat's armoury.

He said two pump-action shotguns and a dozen 9mm pistols were taken.

An Armidale-class patrol boat would carry a stock of machine guns, assault rifles, shotguns, 9mm pistols and ammunition in its armoury.

Territory police Commander Richard Bryson says it appears the offender appeared to be familiar with the layout of the boat and ADF procedures."
