The Murrieta Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

The event will take place on Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the front lobby of the Murrieta Police Department at 2 Town Square. The service is free and anonymous; no questions asked.

Last April, Americans turned in 390 tons of prescription drugs at over 6,100 sites operated by the DEA and thousands of state and local law enforcement partners, according to a news release. To date, the DEA and its partners have taken in over 4.1 million pounds -- more than 2,100 tons -- of pills.

Any questions about this event should be directed to Murrieta Police Department Lieutenant Tony Conrad at 951-461-6309.
