Eight unclaimed guns emerge during a Saline County Sheriff's investigation.
According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, Deputies following up on leads from recent burglaries on W. State Street, found 8 handguns in a Salina home.
Sheriff Kochanowski tells KSAL News that the homeowner gave investigators consent to search the residence a couple of weeks ago.
Deputies found the handguns - all in individual carrying cases. The list includes 3 semi-automatic pistols, 3 .22 revolvers, a .32 revolver and a black powder pistol.
The homeowner is not a suspect in the case.
The Sheriff says they have been working with the ATF on identifying the gun owners, but is hoping anyone missing a handgun will come forward.
"We need people, if they are missing a handgun to contact our investigators to see if we can get these guns returned to the right people."
