Qld police uncover state's largest cache of weapons

Queensland police say they have uncovered the largest ever cache of weapons to be found in the state, including illegal firearms and military style weapons.

Three men have been charged over the haul, which included 328 fire arms and 4.2 tonnes of ammunition, found during a raid on a property in Monto east of Bundaberg.

The weapons were allegedly stashed in sheds and other dwellings, dispersed around an 800 hectare farm.

Police say nearly all the weapons are high-powered fire-arms.

The three men are due to face court on December 18th, 2013.
