RED BLUFF, Calif. - The Red Police Department said that it is alarmed by a recent spike in drug overdoses in the area.

Officers responded to four separate incidents of people unconscious from overdoses in just the past two weeks.

The nasal spray Naloxone was used on three of the four.

Police say they also have reports of heroin being laced with Fentanyl, which is an extremely powerful synthetic opioid. It is said to be up to 100 times more potent than morphine.
