The Franklin County Sheriff's Department announced the results of their recent prescription drug takeback events. The events were held in Brookville, at the United Methodist Church parking lot on Monday, April 19th, and in Metamora, at the Metamora Volunteer Fire Department on Wednesday, April 28th. Deputies collected a combined amount of 75 pounds of unwanted, unused, or expired medications.

“Anytime that you can prevent that amount of unwanted, unused, or expired medication from getting into the wrong hands, or prevent that amount from getting into the environment, that is a huge win for our community,” said Deputy Jason Lovins. “All of this would not have been possible without collaboration with our community partners: Margaret Mary Health, Stayin' Alive LCC, Metamora Volunteer Fire Department, and the Brookville United Methodist Church. Most of all, it would not have been possible without our citizens,” Lovins continued.

Deputies would like to remind citizens that there are three area permanent takeback collection sites: the Franklin County Sheriff's Department, Margaret Mary Health main hospital in Batesville, and the Batesville Police Department.
