The Russells Point Neighborhood Watch hosted a Drug Abuse Awareness Training seminar Thursday night, with representatives from the Russells Point Police Department and the Logan County Sheriff’s Office sharing information on drugs of abuse, drug use trends, crimes driven by drugs, and the long lasting addictive effects of drug abuse for a number of local concerned residents. Participants were given the opportunity to see up close different drugs such as marijuana, crack cocaine and heroin, as well as the paraphernalia that accompanies those drugs. Village police lead a medication take-back day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Indian Joint Fire District. No sharps or liquids will be accepted.
