Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station will be holding a one-day event as part of the Gifts for Guns Campaign tomorrow (Saturday).
“This is the first year our station will be doing this,” said Lt. Greg Sisneros.
The campaign was started by Sheriff Lee Baca and was successful last year, recovering 1800 shotguns, pistols and assault rifles at the Compton and Lennox sheriff’s stations.
“Sheriff [Baca] decided to do this county-wide,” Sisneros said.
The program is simple, bring in a gun in working condition or not, and receive a gift card from a local merchant. A person who brings in a non-working or poor quality gun will receive a $50 dollar gift card, an assault rifle is exchanged for a $200 card and all others are exchanged for a $100 card.
