Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office holding gun buyback Saturday

TAMPA — The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office will be holding a gun buyback at five locations on Saturday.

Anyone will be able to turn in a gun anonymously -- no questions asked -- in exchange for $75 and a Tampa Bay "Fan Pack" with ticket vouchers for a Lightning and Rays game, deputies said.

Locations include the sheriff's office operations center at 2008 E. Eighth Ave., a closed gas station at 13501 N. Nebraska Ave., an *IGA grocery store at 14720 E. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., and two other sheriff's office locations at 7519 W. Waters Ave. and 7935 Flower Ave.

All firearms must be unloaded when turned in. Ammunition, BB guns, pellet guns and paint ball guns will also be accepted, but can't be exchanged for cash.

Every firearm collected Saturday will be destroyed.
