    "Operation Gun Swap":

    Operation Gun Swap was an enormous success. Deputies collected 2,541 firearms; including at least 11 stolen guns, and hundreds of illegal weapons. At every one of the five locations, there were lines of cars to get into the event. Once inside, people swapped their guns for $75 cash and a Tampa Bay “Fan Pack”.

    There were two rocket launchers turned in during Operation Gun Swap. Once they were dropped off, HCSO bomb technicians inspected the rocket launchers and determined they were unloaded.
