Dubuque Drug Task Force Warning

Tuesday March 08, 2016 12:01pm

The Dubuque Drug Task Force is currently investigating several cases of heroin overdoses that have occurred within the last week. While heroin use is on the rise nationwide, this sudden, local increase in overdoses seems to indicate the presence of a highly potent or otherwise altered version of the already dangerous drug in the community. Due to the ongoing, active nature of the above referenced investigations, additional details will not be released at this time. The purpose of this public notification is to promote increased awareness among heroin users, their friends and family members.
