Nineteen-year-old from Melbourne pleads guilty to 19 charges over importation of more than 200 weapons but will stand trial on three summary charges.

A Melbourne teenager arrested during anti-terrorism raids which allegedly foiled an Anzac Day attack has pleaded guilty.

Mehran Azami, 19, of Narre Warren faced the Victorian county court on Monday accused of importing more than 200 weapons, including flick knives and stun guns designed to look like iPhones.

The Operation Rising raids also collected two other men, aged 18, who have been charged with conspiring to commit an act of terror.
Police alleged Azami was importing weapons for the pair “as part of their pursuits prior to and up to Anzac Day”.
