RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department melted down more than 3,000 weapons in its annual Gun Melt.

The 22nd Gun Melt in Rancho Cucamonga used weapons confiscated by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s personnel and 10 other law enforcement agencies.

The department said the weapons would be destroyed so they can never be used for a crime again.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell was joined at the event by chiefs and leaders from police departments around Southern California.
