State police partner with DEA to collect unwanted drugs

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana residents who have prescription drugs they no longer want or need can get rid of them Saturday.

State police are partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration in the program. The initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft through proper disposal of prescription drugs.

The unwanted drugs may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except the Toll Road Post, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday.

State police also will host a drop off site from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday inside the Indiana Government Center North public entrance off of Robert Orr Plaza in Indianapolis.
