Navy member arrested and charged over theft of weapons

A SERVING member of the Royal Australian Navy has been arrested and charged over the theft of 14 weapons from a Darwin patrol base last month.

Leading Seaman Matthew Evans, 26, will appear in Darwin Magistrates Court facing 15 charges, including aggravated robbery.

The Chief of Navy, Vice Admiral Ray Griggs, said: "As I have said on a number of occasions this is a very serious matter and Navy does not tolerate any form of criminal behaviour.

"I am pleased that we have seen further progress on this case following the early success of the NT Police when they arrested a man for possession of the weapons.

"Navy will continue to assist in any way possible with the investigation."
