On Saturday, April 26, 2014 the Murfreesboro Police Department had what they called a very successful combined “Drug Take Back” and “Gun Buy Back” special event. Major Clyde Adkison told WGNS, "We took back a total of one hundred forty-eight (148) pounds of various types of unwanted and/or expired drugs from citizens." We were told that all of the drugs were picked up by the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) to be properly disposed of.

The other partners in the “drug take back” event were the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.), Community Anti-Drug Coalition of Rutherford County (CADCOR), and St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital.

A total of six (6) firearms were surrendered in the “Gun Buy Back” program. They consisted of the following:  

  •             One (1) - Rifle
  •             One (1) - Shotgun   
  •             Two (2) – Semi-Auto Pistols
  •             Two (2) - Revolvers
