Police raided the priest’s Armidale home this morning during a dramatic raid, removing several items from inside.

Armidale Police Inspector Greg Steer confirmed his officers had made an arrest this morning.

“We’re certainly not denying it but we don’t wish to comment on it at this time,” he said.

“He is very well known in Armidale, but well known in Sydney as well.”

It is unknown whether the priest has been charged yet.
