MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Marana Police Department is looking to get rid of about 120 guns it has confiscated during investigations.

Today, officers will invite federally licensed firearms dealers to look at their gun inventory and take some time to figure out how much they'll want to bid on the whole collection. Only one bidder will win.

The gun sale is not open to the public. It's only open to licensed gun dealers in Pima County.

Sgt. Jose Alvarez with MPD tells Tucson News Now the department is following a new state law,  which requires any legal weapons that come into a city or county's possession be sold rather than destroyed. He adds the gun sale will empty out space in the evidence room and help the department raise money for new equipment.

Interested dealers are scheduled to officially bid next week Friday, November 22 and police are expected to notify the winning bidder on Tuesday, November 26.
