The Dayton Police Narcotics Bureau and The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Range Task Force continue to encounter powdered fentanyl during their drug seizures.
During their investigation, it was learned that this blue fentanyl powder is being pressed into pill form and made to look like prescription oxycodone hydrochloride with M30 markings. The pills are then sold as prescription oxycodone on the street which could lead to a fatal overdose, based on the amount and type of fentanyl pressed into a pill.
The Community Overdose Action Team reminds you that any illegal drug you purchase and use could contain fentanyl. Fentanyl is a highly potent drug which greatly increases your chance of an overdose. It is 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin.
