Getting prescription drugs off the streets and out of the wrong hands was the name of the game with the Pitt County Sheriff's Office Saturday afternoon.
The Second Annual Operation Medicine Drop was held at the Pitt County Recreation Building Saturday afternoon.
People were urged to drop of their unused or unwanted prescription medicines to a safe location.
This year the nice day may have played a role in the amount of prescription drugs that were dropped off.
Sheriff deputies say about 5800 dosage units were dropped off compared to last year when about 30,000 dosage units were taken off the street.
