A German man was on Friday discovered to be hoarding more than 2.5 tons of weapons and ammunition in the town of Pinneberg, near Hamburg in north-west Germany.
The 2.5 tons of weapons and ammunition were discovered in his possession after the police raided his house, reports dpa.
Police found 114 guns and 71,000 rounds of live ammunition during the raid, which was carried out as part of an investigation into a firearms violation, they said in a statement.
“Dynamite, an array of knives, and chemicals for the production of ammunition were also found.
