Bedford police will collect old, unused and unwanted drugs
On Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Bedford Police Department, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, will take part in Drug Take Back Day, and will accept expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs — no questions asked. “Unused and unwanted prescription drugs become the target of thieves who find, steal and use the drugs, particularly pain killers, and they can become recreational drugs, which could result in death,” said Bedford Police Chief John Bryfonski, who served 27 years with the DEA in Philadelphia, Pa., and in Delaware.
In March, Bedford police handled four incidents of drug overdose, and although they didn’t lead to death, Bryfonski said police determined they were due to heroin. Drop off your old prescription drugs in pill or patch form at the safety complex at 55 Constitution Drive, off Routes 101 and 114 in Bedford. The deaprtment cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps. The service is free and anonymous.
