Police are hoping information from the general public will help them retrieve two firearms stolen from a Dubbo home.

Between 7am and 11pm on Sunday, the premises on Birch Avenue, owned by a 53-year-old man, was broken into.

Three firearms – a.308 rifle, and two .22 calibre rifles, were stolen from a locked safe.

Anyone with information about the missing firearms is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

The incident comes as Orana Mid-Western police urge residents to be mindful of what’s happening in their neighbourhoods.

“If you see someone that you think should not be at the house or business or hanging around acting suspicious, let us know,” a post on their Facebook page reads.

“We would rather be called to a job to talk to someone that is meant to be there than find out later we could have caught someone in the act.”
