More Spiked Heroin in Delaware?


Newark, Del. (AP) - Five heroin overdoses in a 24-hour period are leading to suspicions that heroin laced with a powerful painkiller has resurfaced in Delaware.

State police spokesman Corporal Jeff Oldham says investigators are looking into whether the heroin involved was laced with fentanyl.

Police say there have been two single-vehicle crashes that appear to be the result of overdoses.

Last night, paramedics revived two men who overdosed on heroin outside a gas station on Christiana Road. The men were in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived. They told police they bought heroin in Wilmington and passed out shortly after they used it.

Oldham says another person overdosed today. None of the overdoses have been fatal.

Heroin laced with fentanyl has been linked to dozens of deaths in the Northeast this year.
