Izard County’s participation in the tenth annual drug take back program conducted April 25 was very successful. Sheriff Tate Lawrence said collections of unused, unneeded, or otherwise unwanted prescription drug totaled 203 pounds of such collected at the drug drop offs in Melbourne and Horseshoe Bend. This 203 pounds will not cause overdoses, deaths, nor will they pollute our waterways. Sheriff Lawrence said the drugs will soon be delivered to Troop B Headquarters of the Arkansas Police next week for proper disposal.
