'Gift Cards for Guns': Police collect 161 firearms – WTOP

WASHINGTON — People waited outside of the First Baptist Church of Glenarden in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Saturday morning to trade in their guns for gift cards.

Within minutes of kicking off this year’s “Gift Cards for Guns,” Prince George’s County police collected more than 30 guns, said Cpl. Harry Bond.

The trade-in program started in 2012 and aims to make the community safer by taking guns off the streets.

Each shotgun or rifle was worth a $75 gift card, a handgun was worth a $125 gift card, and each semi-automatic handed in earned a $175 gift card.

“One guy came in with a bin full of handguns, and he will get a gift card for each handgun he brought in,” said Bond. “There are no questions asked. We’re not checking any IDs.”

Officers first check if the guns were stolen; if they were, they are returned to the rightful owner. All other firearms are melted down.

The Prince George’s County Police Department partnered with First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Zion Church and the University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center. The partners gave away nearly $20,000 in gift cards at Saturday’s event.

This year, the department collected 161 firearms: 59 long guns and 102 handguns. In 2015, they gathered about 300 firearms.

On the way out of the event, one woman smiled and said she was going to the mall to spend her gift card.

Police: Man provided alcohol before fatal snowmobile crash – Idaho Statesman

The owner of a snowmobile rental company faces criminal charges after Vermont State Police said he supplied alcohol to an underage employee who died in a snowmobile crash last winter.

Michael Lynds of Plymouth is charged with enabling consumption by a minor, causing death or serious injury.

Police said 20-year-old Stephen Titus of Reading died in March 2017 after he left his job at Snowmobile Vermont in Plymouth.

Police said Titus was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed his snowmobile. He was found dead the next morning.

Lynds, who’s 50, didn’t immediately return a message left at his home on Saturday. He’s due in court on Jan. 9.

NBA DFS for November 18: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy basketball picks – CBSSports.com

Before you enter a daily fantasy basketball tournament for NBA action Saturday night, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say. McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and is off to a red-hot start this season, already cashing multiple tournament and cash game rosters.

He has been able to do all that thanks to some spot-on picks.

On Friday, McClure identified Clippers forward Blake Griffin as a must-play on FanDuel. The result? Griffin notched his fourth double-double of the season as L.A. took advantage of a struggling Cavaliers defense. Anyone who rostered him was well on their way to an in-the-money finish.

For Saturday’s slate, McClure is all over Grizzlies guard Mario Chalmers as a huge value pick. At just $3,900 on FanDuel and $4,100 on DraftKings, you get a player who will see expanded usage with Mike Conley (Achilles) out of the lineup. Chalmers played 30 minutes in the Grizzlies’ last game on Wednesday night.

According to McClure, while idea of Chalmers facing Chris Paul sounds troubling, it’s impossible to ignore the price tag of $3,900 in a pace-up game for the Grizzlies.

Chalmers is an absolute steal, and his near-minimum salary allows you to roster a stud like Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

McClure says you need exposure to the Sixers-Warriors game considering his projected total and the Vegas betting total are both 20 points higher than any other game on the slate.

Curry makes the most sense since he has the best combination of matchup, price, and opportunity cost at the position. Curry and the rest of the Warriors are coming off an abysmal performance at Boston on Thursday, so look for a statement game on Saturday night from the four-time All-Star.

McClure is also targeting a player who went bonkers in a similar
