Authorities accepting unwanted prescription drugs Saturday

PLATTSBURGH - Prescription drugs will be taken by local law enforcement agencies as part of the second National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day this Saturday.

North Country officials joined together to announce the April 30 event during a press conference at the local Drug Enforcement Administration office in Plattsburgh.

The public can find a nearby collection site by visiting www.dea.gov, clicking on "Got Drugs?", and entering their zip code. Law enforcement agencies interested in operating one or more collection sites on April 30 can register with the DEA by calling the DEA Field Division office in their area.

Denton Publications will have more on this story later today.
