WWII Era Weapons Cache Found in Creek

Centreville, Alabama A road construction company working on a bridge noticed a cache of weapons in a shallow creek in Bibb County. The workers called the police who responded with ATF agents. Authorities removed the weapons collection, which included WWII era weapons from Japan, Italy and Germany. Included in the collection was a 50mm mortar, a 20mm cannon, two belt-fed machine guns and a Thompson machine gun. Nine weapons were found in all. Most were in great condition with no rust. No ammunition was recovered. Authorities suspect that the weapons collection was stolen and then subsequently thrown into the creek. No one has claimed the collection yet which is valued at over $20,000.
