RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond police say an effort to crackdown on violent crime in the city is working.
Today police showed off a table full of weapons taken in by the city's "Fugitive and Firearms Initiative." It's a summer long program targeting wanted persons and illegal guns.
Richmond police, state police and R.R.H.A police served 129 warrants and seized more than a hundred firearms. Most of the weapons were collected during traffic stops, but some were unique finds.
"If you load it with four or 5 rounds, as long as you keep pulling the trigger, it will continue to fire. So this is a very dangerous, dangerous weapon and we found it in a baby stroller," said Richmond Police Lt. Emmett Williams.
Once the court cases are complete, most of these guns will be melted down at a factory in Petersburg. The last batch was made into manhole covers.
