Drug Take Back program

Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 — From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to the Sheriff’s Office at 1415 Sheriff Cady Lane, Susanville. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

Friday, Sept. 12, 2014 — A number of community members have expressed concern over reports of outlaw motorcycle gangs coming to the Susanville area this weekend, according to a joint press release prepared by Lassen County Sheriff Dean Growdon and Susanville Police Chief Tom Downing.

There are many unverified, unconfirmed rumors at this point. The facts surrounding this weekend are as follows: A motorcycle club known as the O.G. Ryderz will be in Susanville and the unincorporated areas of Lassen County this weekend. The O.G. Ryderz is not a validated motorcycle gang. This club is a known support group or affiliate of the Hell's Angels. The Hell's Angels are a validated Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

Members of the Susanville Police Department and Lassen County Sheriff's Office have done extensive research on the motorcycle club coming to the area.

The Lassen County Sheriff's Office, Susanville Police Department, and the Susanville area California Highway Patrol are working together on this and will have increased staffing levels over the weekend.
