The Laramie County Sheriffs Department took in a record 320 pounds of unused  and unwanted prescription drugs on Saturday April 28th.

Spokesman Gerry Luce says the purpose of national Prescription Drug Take Back Day was to allow citizens to safely dispose of unused or unneeded prescription drugs in an environmentally safe manner.

Luce says this is the 3rd year that the Laramie County Sheriff's Department has participated in this program. The first year over 90 pounds of prescription drugs were taken in. Last year over 120 pounds were turned in.
