CB police accept guns through turn-in program

 When you have trash you want to get rid of you take it to the dump. When you have old clothes, you take them to a thrift store or charity. If you have old dishes and household goods you take them to a consignment shop or Goodwill.
What do you do with an old gun? Well, if you live in Colonial Beach you take it to the police department.
Sometimes people end up with a gun in the house either through a death in the family or other circumstances.
Sometimes the gun is unwanted or there are children in the home, which can become a scary combination.
If you have an unwanted gun in your home, the Colonial Beach police want you to know you can bring it to them no questions asked — provided that you follow a few conditions.
If you wish to bring the weapon in to the police station, you must ensure that it is unloaded and keep it in the trunk of your car. Phone police to let them know you are bringing it and keep it locked in your trunk. When you arrive at the police station, an officer will accompany you to your car to retrieve the weapon.
If you wish to have police pick up the weapon, call to set an appointment. Have the gun unloaded and make sure you are not holding the gun when officials arrive.
By disposing of an unwanted weapon in this manner you avoid the risk of it getting into the wrong hands and, if you are caught with a weapon illegally, other than when surrendering it to the police in this manner, you will be charged.
The police department appreciates your support in their efforts to keep our community safe.
Colonial Beach Police Department is now on Facebook. Constructed with the help of Shane Buzby and Shelly Butler, the department’s Facebook page will keep you updated on crime and other issues within the town.
