Sunnyside Police Explorer Joaquin Bustamante (at right) drops documents to be shredded into a locked bin during the Yakima County Crime Stoppers event this past Saturday in Sunnyside. Police explorers and volunteers from Bank of America helped unload boxes of documents from cars to place in the locked bins for shredding at a later date. The event had stations open around the county and also accepted expired prescription drugs. In Sunnyside, six bins of documents and one large bag of medication were collected and about $120 was donated to Crime Stoppers. Across the county the event brought in 55 bins of items to shred, nine large bags of drugs and $1,850 in donations toward Crime Stoppers.
