Azusa : Police Offer Cash for Guns

Share via

The Police Department is offering money for guns.

Depending on the weapon and its condition, police will give Azusa residents between $25 and $50 for guns they no longer want.

The weapons will be destroyed at a local foundry.

Lt. Karen Pihlak said the money is an incentive for residents to turn in guns that otherwise might fall into the wrong hands.

She said police hope to reduce accidents caused by children playing with guns and to curtail the use of guns in domestic disputes.


The program is funded by the city’s drug asset seizure fund.

Guns may be turned in from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Azusa Police Department, 725 N. Alameda Ave.
