The deputy walked to the car with Carroll and observed her shaking worse and when she got to the driver's door and opened it she stood there looking into the car. The deputy pointed his flashlight to the back seat while still watching Carroll and observed her grab what appeared to be a glass pipe from the door handle and attempted to put it in her bra.

Prescription Drug Take Back

St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office is taking back unwanted prescription drugs October 28 at the Sheriff’s Office

Osceola, MO-On Saturday, October 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 14th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office at 360 Chestnut, Osceola, MO. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

Last April Americans turned in 450 tons (900,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at almost 5,500 sites operated by the DEA and more than 4,200 of its state and local law enforcement partners. Overall, in its 13 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 8.1 million pounds-more than 4,050 tons-of pills.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescriptions drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines-flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash-both pose potential safety and health hazards.

For more information about the disposal of prescription drugs or about the October 28 Take Back Day event, go to the DEA Diversion website (St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office).

This official event takes place twice a year, but the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office accepts unwanted or unused prescriptions and medications every day of the year.
