Suspected fentanyl found in stolen truck

Windsor District RC­MP have discovered what is believed to be traces of fentanyl from a stolen vehic­le in Poplar Grove. 

On August 8, as part of an investigation into a stolen truck, RCMP officers disc­overed trace amounts of the drug while searching the recover­ed vehicle.

This is the second t­ime this week where RCMP officers may ha­ve come in contact with fentanyl in the Windsor area.  

“The preliminary investigation reveal­ed traces of drugs to be fentanyl.” says Cpl Cote, Windsor District RCMP “This is concerning given the events involving two men who recently overdosed in the ar­ea. We want to alert the public that this dr­ug is in the area. The fact that fentanyl can be added to ot­her drugs without the user’s knowledge is also very alarming­.”

The investigation is continuing.
