Health Investigator Emergency

What should citizens do who find drug paraphernalia, especially syringes of addicts, lying on ground that kids etc. might come in contact with? ESPECIALLY if left by church parking lot nearby day care playground and where Boy Scouts meet?
I was told that January 2011, at CVS on Marsh Lane at Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas, Texas, 75229 that "CVS called police on a man in 20's who has a heroin addiction, since acting strangely"... another man looking for man's car keys Friday, January 28, 2011, said. Man looking for car keys said had pushed syringes he found that he suspected his relative's into dirt. I said, "I guess it'd be hard to know what to do with syringes because if took to dispose of them police might think whoever did had an addiction instead of just disposing of."
Plus, isn't there a law against possessing drug paraphernalia (does that include syringes). Plus if used WOULD have drug residue in them... What to do since unsafe if syringes left lying around? Should recovered discarded syringes w/illegal substances when collected... if DNA found on them... be put on a registry since reckless disposal of a danger to others?
If a person who finds syringes of an addict and disposes of could that person get into trouble for being in possession of drug paraphernalia via misunderstanding? For see, a man I saw looking for keys of another man he said "CVS called police on" said he pushed syringes he thought that man's, his relative's, into ground. However, if someone ever digging in dirt where man did that could be stuck.
[January 28, 2011, I went up the hill to a church to shoot some basketball hoops. I saw some suspicious activity that looked like someone trying to break into a car. So, I thought on my way home I'd just say, "What's going on!" That likely person would zip off in other car if up to no good. Too, I thought maybe just construction planning on repaving parking lot since man looking down at ground a lot. Turns out was looking for brother's keys.]
Dr. Phil used a word "skanky" on his show. It is sad to me that someone going to church basketball court to shoot hoops across from where Boy Scouts meet & nearby day care is where a heroin addict was allegedly shooting up drugs. Then, disposing of paraphernalia & leaving car in case arrested when went to CVS, his relative suspected. So, what does someone do when happens upon discarded syringes of addicts? Also, why are persons tossing diapers & condoms in parking lots? Drug paraphernalia, condoms & diapers littered in & nearby parking lots, in parks etc. misbehavior sounds like the word Dr. Phil calls skanky...
