By The Staff

The Los Alamos Police Department conducted its bi-annual DEA prescription drug take-back initiative Saturday.


And LAPD came up with quite a haul.

"We conducted two location sites for the first time this year, one at LAMC and the second in White Rock at the public library. The total weight of collected drugs was 332 pounds,” Cmdr. Randy Foster said.
“This is the most we have collected thus far and this continues to be a successful program with community support.”
“I was approached by many seniors in White Rock that stated they were grateful for the second location site because it can sometimes be difficult for them to make arrangements to drive up to Los Alamos” Detective Sergeant Oliver Morris said.

Manning the posts, were Sgt. Jeremy Duran, Cpl. Oliver McCartney, Ofc. Robert Girmendonk Sgt. Oliver Morris, Det. Daniel Roberts and Det. Paige Earley.
