Drug take back, gun amnesty success in Seneca Co.

Seneca County Sheriff Jack S. Stenberg announced the results today of two recent public service events.On April 30, 2011, the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office took part in the nation-wide DEA sponsored “National Drug Take Back Day” where citizens could drop off outdated, unused prescription drugs. In Seneca County over 21 pounds of prescription drugs were turned in and turned directly over to the Drug Enforcement Agency for destruction.This past Saturday, May 7, 2011, the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office sponsored a “Gun Amnesty Day” where citizens could turn in weapons for destruction or safekeeping with no questions asked. Eighteen weapons ranging from long guns to handguns were turned in to the Sheriff’s Office.We are proud to have been able to provide both of these important public service events and plan to do more in the future.
