Janesville police warn of strong batch of heroin after overdoses

Posted:
JANESVILLE (WREX) -

Janesville police believe a stronger-than-normal batch of heroin is moving through the community after two overdoses were reported on Wednesday.

Police responded to the overdoses within two hours of each other. Both subjects survived, but police say heroin moving through the community may be stronger than what users are used to.

Police are warning users that the heroin they may be injecting is possibly fatal and urging them to seek treatment at a local addiction counseling agency.
