Mooresville Police Department will host a drug and syringe take-back event Saturday, April 22nd, from 10am until 2pm at Cannon Pharmacy, 521 East Plaza Drive, Mooresville, as part of the US Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Take-Back Day.
This initiative is designed to help the public prevent prescription drug abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs and syringes. The public can dispose of personal prescription medications and syringes at Cannon Pharmacy on April 22 or drop them off at the Mooresville Police Department’s drug drop box, located at 2487 Charlotte Highway, 24 hours a day.
Since this initiative began in 2012, Mooresville Police Department has collected and destroyed more than 10,880 pounds of prescription drugs through take-back events and the drug drop box. Drug deactivation kits for home use, naloxone, community substance abuse resource guides, and drug lock boxes will also be available at the April 22 event.
For more information on this event and the Mooresville Police Department’s efforts to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft, contact Lee LaBelle, Evidence Technician at 704-664-3311 or [email protected].
