CLEVELAND, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The city is planning to sell its confiscated guns, with the proceeds to be used for purchasing police weapons.
More than 160 firearms on a court-approved list have been released for sale by the district attorney general's office. The Cleveland City Council recently approved a resolution accepting the weapons as city surplus property.
"The final list will be somewhat shorter," Assistant City Manager Melinda Carroll said Friday. "I saw at least four [guns] with no serial numbers, and we cannot sell those."
Those weapons will be otherwise disposed of as required by law, Cleveland Police Department Chief Wes Snyder said.
