City gun-removal program to be unveiled

September 16, 2000

Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Baltimore Police Commissioner Edward T. Norris and other area officials and community leaders will unveil Monday an anonymous tip program designed to remove illegal guns from the streets.

GunStoppers will offer $200 rewards for tips that lead to the apprehension of anyone carrying an illegal gun and the seizure of the weapon. Rewards will be paid within five days of the successful tip. Tipsters can call the program's hotline, 410-685-GUNS.

The program will be outlined at 10:15 a.m. in the upper level west side parking lot of Mondawmin Mall, , 2301 Liberty Heights Ave.
