Shotgun parts located at Pinnacle have led to an arrest at an Orange home in relation to the shooting death of an outlaw motorcycle gang boss near Molong in January.
Bandidos OMCG Central West Chapter President, Shane De Britt was found dead at a property at Eurimbla, north of Molong earlier this year, with Strike Force Kerrison investigating the death.
Three men, from Dubbo and Wellington, were charged for their alleged roles in the shooting murder and remain before the courts, while Tuesday morning's search in Orange marks a fourth arrest.
A search warrant is being executed at the house, while the man has been taken to Orange Police Station, where charges are expected to be laid.
The Homicide Squad's Detective Chief Inspector Wayne Walpole said Strike Force Kerrison detectives are once again appealing to the community to come forward with any information relating to the murder.
"Earlier this month, officers from the Public Order and Riot Squad conducted a search at Pinnacle Reserve at Orange, where they located parts of a shotgun," Detective Chief Inspector Walpole said.
"This weapon was found in pieces and initial inquiries suggest it may have been used in the shooting murder at Eurimbla in January.
"Additionally, we've followed-up on other information received throughout the investigation, which has seen the seizure of seven firearms - which as we know, when in the wrong hands, are dangerous and a serious threat to the safety of our community.
"As our inquiries continue, we are continuing to seek support from the public as we know there are people in the local area who have information about this incident but have not yet come forward."
Investigations under Strike Force Kerrison are ongoing.
