Five people overdosed on heroin bought in Camden within 24 hours, prompting another warning about the drug from Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk Wednesday.
The heroin users overdosed between Monday and Tuesday, Faulk said, though he didn’t identify where in Camden the drugs had originated, out of concern for addicts seeking a more potent high. No one died in this round of overdoses, Faulk said.
It’s at least the third time this year the prosecutor’s office has warned of dangerous heroin in the city, and Faulk said law enforcement agencies are working to determine the drug’s source.
Anyone with information about the heroin or its source is asked to contact the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office at 856-225-8444 or the Camden County Police Department at 856-757-7420.
