According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), prescription drug thieves are
stealing from medicine cabinets during open houses! “Stealing drugs from open houses is indeed a technique drug thieves use to obtain controlled substance prescription drugs, like opioid painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs, ADHD drugs, Xanax and Valium,” said a DEA Special Agent.
In an effort to reduce access to Rx Drugs stolen this way in Morris County, The Community Coalition for a Safe and Healthy Morris (CCSHM) has partnered with the real estate offices
of Century 21, Christel Realtors. CCSHM will provide Century 21 realtors with “LOCKMED LOCKBAGS”(locking units that let homeowners keep medications locked away), allowing them to equip each of their clients with this valuable tool.
Both CCSHM and Century 21 are excited to work together to reduce access to Rx Drugs obtained illegally, and so reduce the increasing numbers of individuals suffering the consequences of Rx drug abuse.
