Los Lunas Police Offer Gun Buyback Program
In an ongoing effort to recover six guns stolen in a Christmas day burglary, the Los Lunas police department is offering to buy back the weapons taken from a local Wal-Mart.
Police Chief Roy Melnick says the department will pay anyone who may have bought the stolen guns the same price they paid, as long as they give them information that might lead them to the suspects who burglarized the store early Christmas morning.
Among the items stolen were five Remington rifles and a Remington shotgun.
Los Lunas police say the suspects were in a white pickup.
They say anyone who participates in the gun buyback program will remain anonymous and will not be prosecuted if they bought the guns without knowing they were stolen.
