Hundreds of pounds of prescription drugs are off the streets and out of medicine cabinets in Columbus.

The Muscogee County Sheriff's Office partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration in their National Drug Take-Back initiative this month.

The sheriff's office says 888 pounds of prescription and over-the-counter drugs were turned in last week.

They collected 686 pounds in May for a 2013 total of more than 1,574 pounds.
