Used Syringes Taken from Near School Grounds


Used syringes sat just outside the gates of Merryhill Charter School for days until they were finally taken away.

The school, along W Street, told FOX40 that they called police about the needles and were waiting for them to be picked up, but police say they have no record of the call.

The needles sat for more than a week before being removed Thursday.

The City of Sacramento says residents should call 311 if there is medical waste that needs to be removed.
