Broward Sherriff’s Office is constantly organizing events that help citizens get rid of unwanted guns and drugs, no questions asked. This can represent a good opportunity for Fort Lauderdale and Broward inhabitants to avoid legal issues and difficult situation, and a way to contribute to reducing gun violence. Our Fort Lauderdale criminal defense team wants to remind our Fort Lauderdale readers that illegally owning guns is a serious offense and can lead to additional charges depending on the guns history.
Broward Sherriff’s Office collected 68 firearms during a gun buyback at Lauderhill Park, including a Marlin Commemorative 30/30 rifle. The event, hosted by the Broward County Sherriff’s Office and the Lauderhill Police Department, proved to be an efficient means of combating gun violence and illegal gun ownership.
In another context, the Broward Sheriff’s Office and Pembroke Pines Police Department held a prescription drug take-back, during which over 30,000 pills were also collected for destruction.
We recommend Broward and Fort Lauderdale citizens to pay attention to this type of situations and avoid criminal charges due to illegal gun possession or because of a mix-up related to prescription medication, especially related to narcotics. These can represent serious legal issues and a criminal defense lawyer from our team is always at your disposal to discuss your specific criminal charges and situation and offer you specialized legal advice and representation.
