YORK – After two overdose deaths in a 24-hour period York County sheriff’s deputies say there could be a so-called “bad batch” out there.
The sheriff posted a warning on their Facebook page. He says the first death happened Sunday in Cornish.
A second happened Monday night in Arundel. Both victims were young men one with children.
The sheriff says there is a chance there is a bad batch of heroin being sold and they want the word out there to users, to be on alert.
“We’ve had two deaths it’s my understanding that there were four deaths in Hampton, New Hampshire so we may have some problem out there.” Sheriff Bill King, York County
Sheriff King says he also believes the heroin is coming from out-of-state dealers looking to traffic the drug here in Maine.
