Lots of ammo, one gun turned in

More than 300 rounds of ammunition and one firearm have been turned in since
the Royal Cayman Islands Police ‘cash-for-guns’ programme started on 1 August.  

“Individuals have received remuneration for that,” RCIPS Superintendent
Marlon Bodden said Monday, 

Officers also noted one .380 cal. handgun had been turned in earlier in the

Police were offering $25 per 10 bullets received under the programme, so
payments from the fund established by the High Impact Media company will have
totalled somewhere around $825 thus far for the ammunition alone.  

Up to $200 was offered for each operational firearm turned in by 31 August,
including working pellet guns and air rifles, police said.
