NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- More than 250 firearms surrendered to police officers last month as part of a gun buyback program in New Albany, Indiana have been destroyed.
Police had given money to the people who turned in their firearms. The event was so popular that they distributed all of their allocated money.
Officers destroyed the guns Monday morning using a powerful metal shearing machine.
Now, that metal will be recycled for other uses.
