Drug Enforcement Agency

The Sedgwick County Sheriff's office is partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other law enforcement agencies for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m Saturday, Oct. 22.

Personnel from the Sedgwick County Sheriff's office will staff three drop-off locations, including the Sedgwick County Zoo, 5555 W. Zoo Blvd.; the Household Hazardous Waste Center, 801 W. Stillwell; and the Oaklawn Activity Center, 4904 S. Clifton.

The initiative includes any expired or leftover prescriptions or over-the-counter medications.


A federal Drug Enforcement Agency affidavit obtained by the Associated Press says a Mexican cartel is suspected of laundering $2 million dollars in drug proceeds through Plains State Bank in Kansas, to avoid tighter restrictions on U.S. currency in its home country.

A search warrant filed Tuesday in federal court lays out the investigation into alleged money laundering between 2011 and 2014 by a cartel known as the Mexican Mennonites and others.

The warrant was executed against a former banking official.
