Lebanon Police Issue Warning on Lethal Batch of Heroin

Police in Lebanon NH showed they’re more than just worried about making arrests when it comes to the fight against heroin, as the department issued a warning to users Tuesday in regards to a particularly lethal strain.

The message – posted on the department’s website and Facebook page – cited a recent report by the Keene Police Department on a bad batch of heroin being sold under the name “Hollywood.” Police say the batch is believed to be the cause of at least one non-fatal incident in Keene, and eight deaths over in Massachusetts.

According to the Keene Sentinel, the batch is believed to have been laced with fentanyl, making the drug much more powerful than normal.

Lebanon Police did not say in the message whether the particular batch of heroin has been located in the city itself, though Vermont State Police say it was responsible for at least one overdose death up in Newport.
