The Iowa State Auditor's Office weighed in Wednesday on a 2012 gun swap by a southwest Iowa sheriff, stating in a report that the disposal of roughly 115 guns did not follow state law.
The report also states that the Fremont County Sheriff's Office should follow Iowa code from now on when disposing of unneeded firearms and that the county should seek legal advice to ensure compliance with the law.
