Betty Morgan, right, a Snoqualmie Ridge resident, stopped by the Snoqualmie Police Department’s drug collection event Saturday, April 28, to safely dispose of some expired medicine. Officer Sherwood was on hand to help supervise the collection event, which gathered 63 pounds of unwanted medicines.

The drugs were incinerated at a Seattle facility owned by the Drug Enforcement Agency, which sponsors the semi-annual collection days.
