The Asheville Police Department (APD) is warning the public of a potentially dangerous batch of narcotics that resulted in back-to-back overdose cases. Officers responded to four different overdose cases in the downtown area Thursday between 1 and 2 p.m. Two of the cases were in Pritchard Park, and two others in the nearby area. All persons were transported to Mission Hospital for treatment.

APD encourages those who are suffering from addiction to seek assistance by contacting Vaya Health at (800) 849-6127.

As always, anyone with information to share with the Asheville Police Department can send an anonymous tip using the TIP2APD smartphone application (search "Asheville PD" in your app store) or by texting TIP2APD to 847411. You can also contact APD at (828) 252-1110.
