MADRAS, Ore. (AP) - The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in central Oregon says nearly 1,100 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs have been dropped off for safe disposal in the last year and a half.

Officials tell The Bulletin (https://bit.ly/201dBmK) that the drug take-back program has boxes set up at the sheriff’s office in Madras, Culver City Hall and Crooked River Ranch Fire and Rescue.

Officials say disposing the prescription drugs means they won’t fall into the hands of teenagers.
