Adams Co. to auction 135 confiscated guns

NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Adams County Sheriff's Office is cleaning out its gun closet.

The Adams County Board of Supervisors has approved the sheriff's office request to auction 135 guns confiscated during criminal investigations by the sheriff's office and Metro Narcotics.

Sheriff Chuck Mayfield says there are all kinds, from long guns to a .22-caliber revolver small enough to tuck into a boot.

Martin and Martin auction company will sell the weapons at a location south of Hattiesburg.

Mayfield says it won't be open to the general public - only to federally licensed firearms dealers.
