SCMPD Recalls Defective Gun Locks

Savannah-Chatham police gave away free gun locks this weekend, but some of those locks are being recalled. Take a look at the lock pictured here; if your gun lock is red, you need to return it because it is defective. The cable on the red gun lock can unlatch without the key.

If you have it, return it to Precinct 2 on Bull Street. They will replace it for free.

"A number of them were distributed and for the most part, most of them were safe and effective," said police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wilson. "We had about 25 that were defective, they're clearly identifiable, they're red in color and they should be turned into Precinct 2 as soon as possible."

If you don't have a gun lock and would like one, you can also pick one up at Precinct 2 free of charge.
