A Tatura man was remanded in custody in Shepparton Magistrates' Court lat week to face drug and firearm offences following a police raid on two properties.

A Tatura man will spend the next few weeks behind bars after his arrest in relation to a police raid of two properties.

Michael Sean Rossignuolo, 42, was taken into Shepparton Magistrates’ Court in handcuffs on Thursday last week after spending the night behind bars.

Police will allege that he committed a range of offences, including trafficking methamphetamines, cocaine and ecstasy.

He is also accused of possessing a range of illegal drugs, including steroids, cocaine as well as unregistered category C and D firearms and dealing with the proceeds of crime.

The charges stem from raids on a residential property and a rural property on Wednesday morning last week.

He entered no plea and remained quiet during the brief court appearance.

His family were visibly upset as he was taken into the court, handcuffed, by police.

Among the 21 charges, he was also alleged to have been in possession of illegal fireworks, a laser pointer and having $2420 in cash that was suspected of being from the proceeds of crime.

He made no application for bail, was remanded in custody and will next face Shepparton Magistrates’ Court on July 17.
