CLEVELAND, Ohio  – Police departments throughout Northeast Ohio collected unused and old prescription drugs Saturday for the 15th annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

“You want to get rid of them, they are in your cabinet but you don’t know how. You don’t want to throw them down the toilet. You don’t want to put them in the garbage, so when these opportunities come up you take advantage,” said Debbie Rada who stopped into the Lakewood Police Department to drop off a large bag of pills.
