On September 17, 2022, Viva Toyota of Las Cruces teamed up the Las Cruces Police department for a gun buyback. 107 guns were turned in and destroyed in an effort to make our community safer.
With the help of the New Mexico to Prevent Gun Violence team, the Las Cruces Police Department, and the Viva Toyota team, collected 107 firearms and dismantled on site.
