Sept 26, 2022 – Police said the people unknowingly took fentanyl. The department previously told FOX5 they are seeing many cases like that.

“The party drugs, or Xanax or Percocet anything like that that the kids are just wanting to experiment,” LVMPD major violators narcotics crimes bureau Capt. Brandon Clarkson said. “What we are finding is these pills are laced with fentanyl, and just a little bit of fentanyl can kill you.”

In neighboring Arizona, Phoenix police recovered more than one million fentanyl pills and arrested two on Friday. It was the biggest seizure in the city’s history, according to the police department.

The Biden Administration announced last week it was providing $1.5 billion in federal funding to all states to address the opioid crisis.
