More than 1400 pounds of outdated and unused prescription and other-the-counter medications were packed into boxes for disposal at an out-of-state incinerator.
According to Lukas, the exact destination of the truck’s cargo — which left the sheriff’s office late Monday morning — could not be disclosed for security purposes.
The drugs were collected at various drug take-back events held across Portage County, and such a shipment is sent for proposal disposal at least once a year.
