SBSO holds Drug Take-Back Day

Residents properly disposed of nearly 40 pounds of unwanted or expired prescriptions and overthe-counter medications on Saturday, April 27 as the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office participated in the annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Narcotics officers with the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office accepted the unwanted medications over a fourhour period at the Special Investigations Division substation, 7001 W. Judge Perez Drive in Arabi.

Over the past year, the Sheriff’s Office has collected nearly 120 pounds of unwanted medication from residents in an effort to ensure they don’t fall into the hands of youngsters who might misuse them or thieves who could sell them on our streets, the Sheriff said.
