SC Co Firearm Recovery Operation-1/18/18-1540-PMD
A two-day firearm recovery operation resulted in the seizure of a pistol. Santa Cruz County law enforcement agencies teamed up with agents from the California Department of Justice (DOJ) Bureau of Firearms to locate guns owned by individuals who are prohibited from possessing firearms. The operation was scheduled as a compliance measure and was not in response to any specific threat or incident. Investigators found a high-degree of compliance with firearms laws in Santa Cruz County. During the two-day operation beginning January 16th officers checked 47 addresses, and seized one semi-automatic handgun leading to the arrest of an individual who was not allowed to have a gun due to a domestic violence restraining order.
