Police say two of the non-fatal overdoses were revived with Narcan, which was administered by EMS. The investigation revealed that two of the overdoses, including the fatal overdose, were linked to the same heroin distributor. White, wax fold bags, with “First” stamped in red, were recovered from those scenes. No evidence was recovered from the third overdose.

The name and age of the fatal overdose victim has not yet been released.

Anyone with information pertaining to any of these cases should contact the Hamilton Township Police Department at (609) 625-2700.
