Police said the incident was sparked when a 30-year-old man and his wife were involved in a minor collision with a Peugeot hatchback on Parramatta Rd about 8.20pm. The man's car sustained minor damage to the driver's side mirror but it is alleged the Peugeot did not stop at the scene. The couple caught up with the Peugeot further along Parramatta Rd when it be- came stuck in heavy traffic. When they got out of their car and approached the Peugeot, police said its 42-year-old male driver started to drive slowly at them, forcing the man on the bonnet. He then allegedly drove for approximately 4km along major roads in heavy traffic with the other man clinging to the bonnet. It is alleged he also tried to throw the man off the bonnet by driving through a red light and on the wrong side of the road, and accelerating and braking. The man was not hurt and the driver was eventually stopped by highway patrol offi- cers on Patterson St at Concord and arrested. Police have charged an Ermington man with high-range drink driving (0.207), driv- ing in a dangerous manner, negligent driving and not exchanging particulars.

Cache of weapons seized in two raids POLICE raided a house in Concord last week and allegedly seized 3600 rounds of 7.62-calibre ammunition. Detectives arrested a 62-year-old man after they searched the house in Noble St on Thursday. A day earlier they had raided a house in Powder Works Rd, Elanora Heights and allegedly seized a cache of weapons, including a 12-gauge pump action shotgun and a Magnum revolver. A 59-year-old man was arrested at the property and charged with 38 firearms offences. The raids were carried out by detectives from the Firearms and Organised Crime Squad. The squad's Commander Arthur Katsogiannis described gun crime as ''a blight upon our society''. ''The seizure of these firearms will prevent them being used in the commission of any offence or in taking a human life,'' he said. The operation coincides with the State Government's gun amnesty, which ends on May 31. consider. . . minnamurra -- an abundant life If you or your loved ones are no longer able to live independently, and require 24 hour care services and support then consider... minnamurra, Presbyterian Aged Care's newly designed and built aged care facility at Drummoyne.
