Manitowoc County putting out warning on heroin after two overdoses in 12 hours

MANITOWOC, WI (WSAU-Wheeler News) -- Heroin is already a bad drug, but authorities are warning that a batch circulating in Manitowoc could be fatal.

Police say the warning comes after two drug users nearly overdosed within a 12-hour period. A spokesperson for Manitowoc Police says if it wasn’t for the quick response of emergency personnel, they would have died.

Authorities are quick to note that heroin is illegal and does not condone the use of illegal drugs, but they have an obligation to warn citizens.
