SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Savannah area police and sheriff’s deputies say they rounded more than 200 pounds of expired and unwanted drugs as part of a national sweep.

The prescription and over-the-counter drugs were collected Saturday as part of an event sponsored by the national Drug Enforcement Administration aimed at keeping prescription pills out of the hands of people who might abuse them.

All of the drugs collected by Savannah-Chatham County police and Chatham County sheriff’s deputies were turned over to the DEA to be destroyed.

Authorities say residents turned up at police precincts with everything from a single prescription bottle to bags full of drugs to turn them over to authorities with no questions asked.
