JEFFERSON COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV) – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is sending the Drug Task Force to test used needles and syringes found in a front yard near a busy highway.
Donald Lynch found the needles and nearly a dozen used syringes when he was walking across his yard on Old 141.
“I was doing some yard work cutting down some branches and I saw something lying in the grass over there and it was this biohazard thing with needles in it,” Lynch said.
The biohazard container showed no indication of where it came from, but an investigation is currently underway.
