Four Counties Awarded Drug Incinerators
Four West Virginia counties will receive drug incinerators to destroy old and unwanted prescription drugs.
Attorney General Patrick Morrisey's office announced that the devices will go to the Boone County Sheriff's Office, the Huntington Police Department, the Star City Police Department and the Wood County Sheriff's Office.
Morrisey's office says the incinerators will help law enforcement officers dispose of the drugs turned into their offices.
The four departments also agreed to accept and destroy pills from other law enforcement agencies in their region.
The incinerators are an extension of a program that has put drug drop boxes throughout the state.
