The DEA is making certain prescription drugs don’t get into the wrong hands.

Saturday the agency collected more than seven hundred pounds of prescription medication.

People dropped off their old prescriptions in their  "DEA Drug Take Back Event" which they hold twice a year.

There were drop off spots across the Coastal Bend.

If you needed to drop off your unwanted prescription drugs but missed out on Saturday’s event, there are locations where you can leave your medications so they don’t end up in the wrong hands.
