That was the tongue-in-cheek message from investigators who confiscated a stash of narcotics, guns and cash on Thursday.

Deputies say the drugs will be destroyed, guns will be sold, and the money will be put into the department’s account.

The sheriff’s office says it will use the proceeds to get new equipment and add new programs to benefit law-abiding citizens.


The department says they will be on the lookout for new donors.

If you know someone that may be willing to donate, contact the tip line at 678-486-1253.
