JCSO sends off firearms to be destroyed

(Hillsboro) Over time, the number of firearms collected by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office can certainly add up and fill the evidence facilities. Once those weapons are no longer needed for future court cases, what happens to them? Many of the guns are collected by a company called Gunbusters to be safely disposed of. Corporal Chuck Whymore says there are several reasons why these weapons are in their possession.

Corporal Whymore says there is a process to have these guns destroyed.

Gunbusters disposed of around 270 guns from the Sheriff’s Office last week.
