Qld Man Lights Bush Fires To Evade Police

A man has set a number of small fires and dumped firearms in bush in a bid to evade Sunshine Coast police.

The man first came to the attention of officers on Sunday afternoon in Maroochydore, when it's alleged he was seen in a vehicle with a hand gun and driving in a dangerous manner. He is said to have later dumped the vehicle at a quarry and thrown two handguns into the bush while lighting small fires to cover his escape.

Officers arrested him a short time later and recovered the guns. He is facing a raft of charges and is due to appear in the Pine Rivers Magistrates Court on Monday.
