Showing up at the police station loaded

COMPTON, Calif. (AP) - December 30, 2009

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department offered gift certificates to those who turned in a weapon -- no questions asked.

Lt. Anthony Lucia reports one man showed up with 58 guns -- ranging from pistols to assault weapons.

Under the program, deputies didn't even ask for the man's name.

He drove away with supermarket gift certificates worth several grand.
