Four of the dosages were deployed in Hamilton Township alone and both Ewing and Robbinsville required the two dosages as well. The batch of heroin stamped “LEXUS RAD” was linked to at least two of the seven overdoses last week. Authorities believe that this batch is laced with another drug, something much stronger, most likely fentanyl.

Law enforcement is doing everything and anything to combat this problem.

With that being said, Mr. Onofri in his press release made sure to remind everyone that “If you see someone experiencing signs of an overdose, don’t run. Call 911. You are shielded from culpability when you call for medical help.”
