DRUG TAKE-BACK NETS 15 POUNDS OF PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS

Early this morning the Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) assisted the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office in a Prescription Drug Take Back event.  This took place at the Central Arkansas Development Council Senior Wellness and Activity Center in Benton.

Over 15 pounds of prescription medications were recovered as a result of this initiative.

“The Drug Take Back program has proven to be an effective way of getting expired and unused prescriptions, which pose a serious danger, out of our medicine cabinets,” said Attorney General Rutledge.

“No community, big or small, is spared from the threat of prescription drug abuse,” said Col. Bill Bryant, director of the Arkansas State Police and former Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Little Rock District Office for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Col. Bryant stated, “These expired or unused prescription drugs sitting in our homes and offices need to be properly disposed.”   

SCSO Sheriff Rodney Wright applauded Attorney General Rutledge for her efforts to remove old and expired medications from our community.  He emphasized that prescription drug abuse in Arkansas is a serious threat that we must address.
