Last Saturday the Pella Police Department worked in conjunction with the DEA and the Pella WalMart to host a prescription drug take back. Anyone possessing prescription medications that were expired, or may have belonged to a lost love one was encouraged to turn those drugs in with no questions asked. Lt. Shane Cox of the Pella Police calls the event a success, and says that 104 pounds were collected locally. Cox adds that anytime these dangerous drugs are taken off of the streets, and away from adults or children that may abuse them, it’s a good thing.
