Lloydminster, Alberta – Lloydminster RCMP wish to warn the public after a recent string of drug overdoses, including several deaths. Since September 20, 2021, Lloydminster RCMP have responded to numerous calls involving people in medical distress, leading to four overdoses, and four deaths believed to be contributed to by the presence of street level drugs. During the various investigations, RCMP and Emergency Medical Services have had to administer Naloxone (Narcan) to the various patients.
Police advise that street level drugs in this area may be unknowingly laced with drugs such as fentanyl, carfentanil, or methamphetamines. These substances may pose a threat to any person handling it without taking the appropriate health and safety precautions. There is an increased risk when various drugs are combined with each other and the user is unaware of the content of the drugs they are consuming.
Lloydminster RCMP are continuing to investigate these incidents.
