Gun buy-back program nets 10 firearms


A total of 10 guns were turned in at a firearm buy-back event on May 1 in Menlo Park, according to police.

Held at Mt. Olive church in Belle Haven, the event was sponsored by the police department, the church, and the Crime Prevention Narcotics & Drug Education Center. People who turned in guns received a $50 gift certificate for each.

Guns can be turned in to the police department "24 hours a day, seven days a week," police said in a press release.
