A MAN has been charged and a woman imprisoned after a search warrant was executed in Banora Point on Tuesday.

Tweed-Byron Local Area Command police had been investigating a home invasion which took place in Kingscliff last week.

About 11am Tuesday, they searched a home on Terranora Rd. 

Police allegedly found a sawn-off firearm at the premises. 

A man, 38, and a woman, 39, were both interviewed and charged by detectives.

The man was charged with possessing a shortened firearm without authority. 

He was granted conditional bail to appear in Tweed Heads Local Court next month.

The woman was charged with an outstanding warrant for driving whilst disqualified. 

She was refused bail to appear before Murwillumbah Local Court on Wednesday. 

She was sentenced to four months' imprisonment.
