Three men to be sentenced for state's largest weapons haul

A MONTO father and his two sons at the centre of Queensland's alleged largest weapons seizure are set to learn their fate in February next year.

Donald Frederick Collard, 71, and his sons Rodney Donald and Stephen Noel are charged with a string of weapons related offences after police raided their Moonford property near Monto in November 2013.

Donald Frederick Collard today pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of ten or more weapons, with at least five being classified weapons.

Police allegedly found more than 328 high-powered military grade weapons and 4.2 tonnes of ammunition during the property search.

Rodney Donald and Stephen Noel did not appear in court but all three men had their bail extended.

The trio will be sentenced in Rockhampton District Court on February 18.
