OAKLEY, Mich. (AP) - State police say they’ve taken possession of 31 guns once used by the police department in the village of Oakley.

Tri-City Post Commander 1st Lt. David Simon tells The Saginaw News (https://bit.ly/1tfbqQr ) that state police met Saturday with Oakley’s police Chief Robert Reznick and the community’s deputy clerk to pick up the weapons.

Simon says weapons include pistols, revolvers and long guns.

The transfer comes after the Oakley Village Council voted in September to shut down the police department. Saginaw County Circuit Court Judge Robert Kaczmerek ordered the police department shut down again in October.

Oakley has roughly 300 residents, but the department had 12 officers and 100 reserve officers who lived around the state and helped pay for the police budget. The village council ordered that equipment be returned.
