Grande Prairie, Alberta – Grande Prairie RCMP responded early this morning to a residence regarding suspected multiple drug overdoses.
Emergency medical services were already on scene when RCMP attended and confirmed that two adult males were deceased. Three other adult males and one female were transported to hospital due to their condition. Preliminary investigation revealed that the substance used was a crystalized bluish/purple substance.
Police would like to bring awareness to local residents of the possibility that street level drugs in our area may be unknowingly laced with drugs, such as fentanyl, carfentanil, 2-Fluorordeschloroketamine, or methamphetamines. As such these substances could represent a threat to persons handling it without taking appropriate health and safety precautions. There is an increased risk when different drugs are combined with each other and the user is unaware of the content of the drugs they are consuming.
Grande Prairie RCMP continue to investigate.
