The Smithville Police Department destroyed approximately 171 items of old evidence on Tuesday.

The evidence ranged from drugs including marijuana , pills , cocaine , and methamphetamine to knifes, brass knuckles, swords, moonshine , and other items.

The evidence destroyed were all used in cases that have been disposed of in court and are no longer needed by the police for prosecution.

Chief Gus Clemente and Det. Sergeant Chris Russell said that destroying these items helps take some of the drugs and weapons off the streets and makes sure the items do not get back into the wrong hands.
