The Yakima County Sheriff's Office is hoping you're looking for outdated or unused medications in your medicine cabinet and drawers in the house. They say the drugs can fall into the wrong hands and cause big problems. Deputies say the medications could be stolen from you and could lead someone to an overdose.

The first 200 people will receive two free tacos. So you can save a life and enjoy lunch on Saturday in Yakima.
