IL sheriff seizes, sells guns. But does he have the authority?

Illinois Review reports:
Dozens of guns taken from crime scenes and accused criminals in Coles County have been sold or traded.

That much is clear.

But ask whether the sheriff had the power to make those deals, and things get murky.

A joint investigation by Illinois Watchdog and the Edgar County Watchdogs looked into the sale or trade of weapons seized by Coles County Sheriff Darrell Cox.
Illinois sure is backward.
