U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin and Alicia Smith, of the Putnam Wellness Anti-Drug Coalition, unveil the permanent drug drop box at the Putnam County Sheriff's Department on Thursday. Putnam County Sheriff Steve Deweese looks on.
Alicia Smith is a member of Putnam Wellness Anti-Drug Coalition, which co-sponsored the drop box.
Suzan Williamson, a DEA agent for West Virginia, said the state collected more than 4,640 pounds of drugs in April alone. "This drop box is the perfect opportunity. You walk in, drop off and walk out."
