Cleveland County officials hosting drug roundup

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Cleveland County officials have announced a prescription drug roundup next week for residents looking to get rid of unwanted or expired medications.

Food stores in Oklahoma City, Norman and Moore will be accepting the drugs during the June 28 event.

Deputies at each site will collect the prescriptions, and the drugs will later be taken to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation to be destroyed.

Sheriff's officials say since June 2013, the roundups have allowed residents to clean 700 pounds of medications out of their homes.

The drug roundups occur quarterly.
