Arpaio's MCSO To Reap Benefits - $257K - From Sales of Seized Firearms

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office reaped much more than expected from last year's big sale of seized and forfeited guns. Today, the Board of Supervisors votes on whether or not to give that $257,443 to Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office to beef up "the safety of its posse members."

The spring cleaning sale of rifles, pistols, shotguns and more took place earlier this (fiscal) year and had been expected to raise approximately $150,000 for the County's general fund.  The weapons were sold in lots of 1,000 to vetted businesses, according to the Sheriff's office.

The Board of Supervisors considers the transfer from the General Fund at its meeting later this morning.
