LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County Sheriff's Office is asking you to take a second look at your medicine cabinet.
The agency is gearing up for it's fourth installment of Operation Medicine Cabinet, a project aimed at getting unused or unwanted prescription pills out of the house and off of the streets.
"Florida is a leader in pill mills and that type of problem. So we should also be a leader in people turning in these drugs," Stacey Payne of Lee County Sheriff's Office said.
Over the past three collection periods, the program has safely disposed of about 229,000 prescription pills. Their first campaign of the year starts on Monday. This time around, they're broadening the project to have collection areas at each of Lee County's five districts. The campaign will run through next week.
