FERGUS FALLS -- Otter Tail County residents can surrender unwanted firearms that they want destroyed to the sheriff's office in Fergus Falls.
Oftentimes these firearms, from handguns to long guns, no longer work properly. At other times the owners do not want them in the hands of family members and do not want to sell them.
The Otter Tail County Sheriff Office works with a private company in Fargo which pulverizes the firearms. Prior to disposal, the serial number is checked to make sure the firearm has not been reported as lost or stolen and has not been used in a crime.
For more information call the county sheriff's office at 218-998-8555.
