A South West man has been fined after a rifle that was carelessly left in his car was stolen earlier this year—and is yet to be found.

Magistrate Linda Keane last week slammed Jamie Bilston, 34, for the very “serious offence” and fined him $1000.

Police said the bolt was left in the rifle making it capable of being fired.
