The Eutaw Police Department reported a rise in the number of guns seized through various instances. Officer Beck explained that most weapons are seized at traffic stops, domestic violence calls and pat downs. He noted that more and more guns are being found on youth. Oftentimes these are weapons that have been reported stolen.“It is important that you know the serial numbers of your weapons. We may have recovered your lost or stolen weapon but without the serial numbers to identify your weapons, returns are impossible,” Officer Beck stated.
Deputy Rodriquez Jones cautioned the community to be aware of what your children are posting on facebook. He has seen youth riding around with hand guns loading and unloading clips.
“It important to be aware of your surroundings. Be cautious if you see someone walking around late at night. Also remember to kept your cars and doors lock at all time,” he stated.
