MACON, Ga. (AP) - The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office for the first time plans to auction off dozens of guns seized by its law officers over the years.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/2bBFuTk ) that pistols, rifles and shotguns are among 60 firearms to be sold Sept. 10 at T. Lynn Davis Realty and Auction Co. in Macon.

The Macon newspaper reports that unclaimed or unwanted guns used to be crushed with other scrap metal after they were no longer needed as evidence in court.

However, a change in Georgia law four years ago requires the guns to be auctioned.

The guns to be sold are among hundreds of confiscated guns that have been in a stockpile since the 2012 law change.
