The sheriff’s office has run out of space to store more than 5,000 firearms that were forfeited or abandoned, according to a news release. The seized guns must be sold at auction or stored by the agency according to Georgia law.
The firearms up for auction include a large number of handguns and hunting rifles. Full auto, street combat style, stolen and illegal firearms and guns used in homicides will not be auctioned, according to the release.
A pre-bid viewing for distribution companies will be Oct. 25.
