MPD’s Weekly Firearm Recoveries:
March 13th to March 20th
(Washington, DC) – Every day, the Metropolitan Police Department works to recover and investigate illegal firearms in Washington D.C.  In addition to our patrol officers, the Department has specialized units—such as the Gun Recovery Unit (GRU), Criminal Interdiction Unit (CIU), and Crime Suppression Teams (CSTs)—who work tirelessly to safely and respectfully secure illegal firearms and get them off of our streets.  From Monday, March 13, 2017, through the morning of Monday, March 20, 2017, MPD detectives and officers recovered 28 illegal firearms in the District of Columbia. 

Among the firearms recovered were:
Saturday, March 18, 2017
  • A brown Remington 870 Magnum, 12 gauge shotgun and a black Llama 380PCP, .380 caliber handgun were recovered from the 200 block of Elm Street, Northwest.  CCN: 17-044-452
It is one of MPD’s main goals to safely remove illegal firearms from DC streets to reduce crime and the fear of crime in the community.  The responsibility to recover firearms falls on the shoulders of all MPD officers.  We also thank members of the community for their help in creating safe neighborhoods.

The Metropolitan Police Department also recovers firearms with the assistance of anonymous tips made through MPD’s anonymous tip line.  Anyone who has information regarding gun recoveries should call police at 202-727-9099.  Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.  The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $2,500 to anyone who provides information that leads to the recovery of an illegal firearm hidden in the District of Columbia.
