residents who wish to dispossess themselves of legally owned but unwanted
firearms may surrender them to the Chesterton Police Department, 790
Police Chief Dave
Cincoski said that gun owners should come to the station during business
hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and should call
ahead--926-1136--to alert officers on station.
Handguns and long
rifles should be unloaded--magazine removed and action open--and transported
in a box or bag. “Dissassembled as far as you can is also good but not
necessary,” Cincoski said.
The CPD will then
dispose of the gun properly.
