Original tommy gun for auction!

LAWRENCE COUNTY, Pa. -- A gun that was seized as evidence is being auctioned off by Lawrence County.

The district attorney said the gun was seized in an armed robbery and the county has kept it locked up because of its value. The 1928 Thompson Sub Machine Gun is worth thousands, according to district attorney Joshua Lamancusa.

Lamancusa said because the county could use the extra money, they've decided to auction it off.

"This is worth $20,000 to $50,000 and we want to put it out there to the general public to buy. It's a way to pay for a car for the sheriff's department that we need," Lamancusa.

To bid on the gun, call 724-656-1916.
