Paul is facing charges of:

  •  contravenes to regulation to store, handle, transport, ship, display firearm (five counts)
  •  unauthorized possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon
  •  possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized
  •  possession of a weapon obtained by commission of offence
  •  possession contrary to order (10 counts)
  •  theft over $5,000
  •  breach of probation (10 counts)
