Secure your prescription drugs

Local police and Casco Bay Create Awareness Now will talk to senior citizens about the growing problem of prescription drug thefts across the state. Medication theft may impact seniors who in many cases are being victimized by a family member, caretaker, assisted services personnel, or even a friend.

Learn how to keep your prescriptions safe, and how properly to dispose of those that should not fall into anyone else’s hands. Bring in expired or unwanted prescription drugs for disposal by law enforcement staff.

The presentation will take place on Thursday, April 27, 9 a.m., at the First Congregational Church of New Gloucester, 19 Gloucester Hill Road. It is free and open to the public. Call Beth Blakeman-Pohl, program director of Casco Bay CAN, at 688-8816.
