Local Agencies to Take Part in Drug Take Back Event


Many law enforcement agencies around the country are teaming up for a Prescription Drug Take Back Event on Saturday. This will be the 11th nationwide Drug Take Back Day. It’s sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration and aims to prevent drug abuse and theft by helping people properly dispose of their prescription drugs.

Among the agencies taking part is the Indiana State Police. Drugs can be dropped off at State Police Posts Saturday, including those in Bremen and Lowell.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department will also be collecting drugs at its offices and at the Walgreens Pharmacy in Plymouth. Additionally, Bremen Police will collect drugs at the Bremen CVS parking.

Expired, unused, and unwanted liquid and pill medications will be accepted with no questions asked. Needles, however, will not be collected.

The Take Back Event takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For a complete list of locations, visit the Drug Enforcement Administration website.
