D.I.S.A.R.M. Officers Confiscate Guns, Arrest Probationers

From the Office of Michael Antonovich

During the month of October, Los Angeles County D.I.S.A.R.M. officers conducted 1,153 searches, arrested 114 probationers, confiscated 37 firearms and over $400,049 in illegal drugs and drug money.

Since its implementation in February, 2000, the D.I.S.A.R.M. program has seized over 9,378 weapons and more than $478 million in illegal drugs and drug money and resulted in over 19,359 arrests.

Nearly 10 percent of probationers searched in this program have been found to be out of compliance with the terms of their probation. D.I.S.A.R.M was initiated by Supervisor Antonovich following the tragic August, 1999, shootings at the North Valley Jewish Community Center and the murder of a postal worker by Buford Furrow, an armed felon on probation from Washington State.
