An especially dangerous type of heroin is on the Camden streets and has caused five overdoses in 24 hours, authorities said. None of the overdoses reported between Monday and Tuesday were fatal, according to a release by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office. But all the victims reported they’d bought the drug in Camden. Authorities would not reveal the exact location where the heroin was bought, out of fear addicts looking for “a more potent high” might go there, the release said. Investigators are seeking the source of the heroin and are warning that the particularly dangerous type is in the city.
Anyone with information on the source is asked to contact the Prosecutor’s Office at 856-225-8444 or Camden County police at 856-757-7420.
