Alexandria police issue warning to community about fentanyl

KALB - The Alexandria Police Department addresses the ongoing problem of heroin and synthetic opioids in our community:  In March of 2016, APD investigated the death of a young man who had taken fentanyl-laced heroin. He quickly lost consciousness and emergency personnel responded, but were unable to revive him. In February of 2017, a young woman took what she thought was heroin—but it had been laced with fentanyl—and the same fate befell her.
