Camden, N.J., Police Investigating Contaminated Batch of Heroin

CAMDEN, N.J. — Authorities are investigating an adulterated batch of heroin they believe is being sold in Camden.

The drug sent three individuals to Cooper University Hospital Friday night for treatment of heroin overdoses. Camden County Police Chief Scott Thomson warned these overdoses may have been caused by a batch of heroin that included toxic elements that could prove fatal without medical attention.

Law enforcement is not publicizing where these individuals purchased heroin but will be testing the drugs to determine the composition. The investigation is ongoing.
