A man has been accused of stealing fire-fighting equipment and a National Parks and Wildlife Service uniform in the Blue Mountains.

Police were patrolling a dirt access road between Blackheath and Medlow Bath railway stations on Sunday when they made the discovery during a raid of 56-year-old man’s car, NSW Police said in a statement on Monday.

They also allegedly found cannabis.

The 56-year-old man, who is not a member of the National Parks and Wildlife Service or the Rural Fire Service, was charged with goods in personal custody suspected being stolen and possessing a prohibited drug.

The man was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Katoomba Local Court on January 27.
