NO DEATHS; HEROIN MAY BE TAINTED
Beware Of ‘Bad Batch,’ Brenner Says

“Each time, our officers had to use both of their Narcan kits to revive the person,” said Brenner. “That tells us that it’s a heavy overdose, possibly tainted with fentanyl.”
The first call came Saturday night, Brenner said, and officers on the scene revived the victim. Three other calls came in on Sunday, with officers reviving two of the victims and a bystander reviving a third, who had passed out on the street.
“It’s discouraging,” he said. “We had actually seen overdoses tapering off, but it seems like there’s been a resurgence.”
Brenner said police are currently working to trace the source of the heroin, and have reached out to LEAF and FOR-DO in hopes of getting the word out to the community about the tainted batch.
“We’ll keep hammering at it,” he said.
