Slaton PD, DEA to host drug drop-off

Slaton Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency do not want you to be a dealer.

The two agencies are hosting a prescription drug drop-off from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at Hearts Together Church of Christ at 340 W. Division Street.

The event will be a drive-through drop-off and syringes and other sharps will not be accepted.
