ROME, N.Y. -- Three men bought six long guns from a garage sale in Rome and now police are trying to find them.
The guns were bought Saturday in Brookside Development off Potter Road.
Rome police were informed that a man was selling his guns, but by the time police got there they were sold. And the seller didn't have any information on the men he sold them to.
“We don't think there was any malicious intent in this whole thing. It was just a lack of knowledge knowing what you can and can't do in regards to long guns, things like that. We are just attempting to locate these males and these guns, so we can make this done the proper way,” said
The proper way to buy a gun is through a gun broker – following a background check.
