SOUTH TAMPA, FL -- In exchange for cash and game tickets, Tampa Bay gun owners participated in "Operation Gun Swap" today in an effort by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office to get firearms off the streets.
In addition to run-of-the-mill firearms, authorities say two rocket launchers were also turned in during the swap.
The launchers were handed over at the Progress Village substation and at a Dover area location, according to a media release.
The launchers were inspected, and neither were loaded, the release said.
