Burbank Police are calling last Saturday’s drug-take back event “…a huge success!” The public was asked to drop off unwanted prescription drugs at the Burbank PD headquarters on October 29. This is the first time this department has joined forces with the Drug Enforcement Administration for this type of event.

The Burbank round-up collected approximately 250 pounds of drugs. The DEA took charge of the drugs, which were later destroyed.  Burbank Police officials say last Saturday’s event helps keep drugs out of the hands of children and reduces “… prescription drug abuse.”
