Law enforcement warns of fentanyl in area

The Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force and the Red Lake Police Department have been investigating several overdoses linked to small, blue pills being sold as 30 milligram Percocet or “perc 30s.”

These pills have reportedly been linked to one fatal overdose and a number of non-fatal overdoses in the region, and initial testing of the substance showed that these pills contain Fentanyl.

These pills are potentially fatal to users or to those who may inadvertently come into contact with the substance.

The public is encouraged to report any information regarding this substance to law enforcement.
