Donnetta Smith of New Orleans places a large amout of old prescription medication in a bin as Captain Pat Childress helps her at the drug take-back event held last month at the sheriff’s Paris Road station.

49 lbs. of drugs collected in drug take-back day

Several residents of St. Bernard Parish and New Orleans said they were glad to hear the Sheriff’s Office was collecting expired and no longer used drugs at its Paris Road station on Saturday, April 26, because they hadn’t known how to turn in such drugs they had. “I’d been waiting for this to get rid of some things” and saw in the media that the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office was collecting them, said Donnetta Smith of New Orleans.
