Prescription drug drop off busy

People drove up to law enforcement officers as if they were approaching a take-out food window. They dropped off prescription drugs instead.

Local law enforcement agencies and Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful accepted outdated or unwanted prescription drugs between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday at the Albany Civic Center parking lot's Oglethorpe Boulevard entrance.

By 11:30 more than 150 pounds of drugs had been collected.
