Duluth Police Issue Warning About Recent Heroin Overdoses

Twin Ports residents are being advised by the Duluth Police Department about a recent spike in heroin overdoses.

Between Friday, April 26th, 2013 and Saturday, May 4th, 2013 the Duluth Police Department and emergency responders have handled the report of four overdose incidents believed to be linked to the illegal use of heroin. Three of the overdoses occurred over the weekend. The incidents involved four persons believed to have overdosed on heroin based on information obtained at the scenes. All needed to be transported to local hospitals.

Although there have been no deaths involved, the police department is warning the public about the issue.

The increase in overdoses primarily attributed to heroin use has again brought attention to this important issue.  Similar reports of overdoses and increased heroin potency continue to occur state and nationwide.  The Duluth Police department continues to engage in efforts to combat the trafficking, sale, and use of heroin through arrests and prosecution of persons involved in trafficking these types of drugs.
