Hundreds of pounds of prescription drugs were collected in only one of the drug-take-back events held by the Benton Police Department so that local residents could take unused drugs out of their medicine cabinets and away from possible abuse or theft. Today, 4,588 pounds of old medicines have been removed from homes in Saline County in seven events. The eighth drug-take-back event will be held Oct. 26.
