Shreveport Police offering cash for firearms

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport Police are offering cash for firearms in an effort to get illegally held guns off the streets.

The effort, called "Don't Shoot, I Want to Grow Up," offers a reward to people who anonymously inform police of suspects who are illegally carrying or possessing a firearm.

Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers will pay $200 for an illegal handgun and $500 for any illegal rifle or shotgun seized.

It is illegal for anyone without the proper permit to carry a concealed weapon, and it is also illegal for anyone who has been convicted of certain felony crimes to possess a firearm.

Police urge anyone who may know about any illegally possessed firearm to call Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 and earn some extra spending money.
