Many Northwoods law enforcement agencies are participating in Saturday's "Take Back " initiative sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The effort enables residents to bring unneeded prescription medications to a collection spot where the drugs are collected at no charge and then are disposed.
In Lac du Flambeau, the collection will be from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Lac du Flambeau Judicial Center on Peace Pipe Road.
Program Coordinator Sue Wolfe says there are a few things to remember when you bring in the drugs for disposal...
Oneida county and regional law enforcement officials report nearly 20 new arrests this week for drug-related crimes. This follows another large number of drug-related arrests earlier this week in Forest county.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office and the Northcentral Drug Enforcement Group made the nineteen arrests as part of a continued investigation.
Most charges relate to possession and distribution of methamphetamines and prescription drugs. Other charges include child abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia.
