Runner finds syringe on sidewalk on Fairground Street
This sidewalk is highly traveled and used quite frequent by young children and students, especially college students going between parts of campus on both sides of street. Police Officers have recovered syringes from parks, sidewalks, and local retailer's parking lots and everywhere in between.

The rise in addiction is not the only concern we are dealing with in Adair County.
There are many issues that go along with drug use and the pictures accompanying this article is one issue which is becoming frequent.
This syringe was recovered by me this morning after a friend called me to tell me he saw it while on his morning run and was concerned somebody could step on it.
. This sidewalk is highly traveled and used quite frequently by young children. Police Officers have recovered syringes from parks, sidewalks, and local retailer's parking lots and everywhere in between.
Columbia Police Department has discussed this issue along with many others in our drug forums which have been held across the county highlighting the drug issues our community is facing.
The forums are still being held and we will be announcing the next location soon. Please come out and join us at our next, soon to be announced forum.
