Latrobe police department has installed a drug take-back box for unused or expired medications.

The department acquired the box through the Westmoreland County District Attorney's office, according to a police department news release.

Unwanted medications can be deposited in the box from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday in the main lobby of Latrobe City Hall, 901 Jefferson St.

Pills and other drugs left unattended or unused are more frequently stolen, police said. The public is encouraged to instead deposit them for disposal by the department.
