ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A number of police departments participated in the 11th Annual DEA Drug Take Back Day last Saturday.

The Creve Coeur Police Department took part in its fifth year. Judging by their twitter photo, it was a success.

The DEA collected over 350 tons of prescription medications in 2015. The idea is to get old or unused prescription drugs out of the house to prevent over doses or even theft.

For anyone that didn't make it to a drop-off location last Saturday, click here for a list of drop-off locations that run throughout the year.
