Crack mixed with fentanyl dropping em in Cinncinati

A spike in overdose deaths in Hamilton County is tied to crack cocaine laced with fentanyl, and officials are warning all drug users to beware. The task force says it has investigated six suspected crack cocaine overdoses deaths in the last 10 days. A dealer is mixing fentanyl with meth and adding red, yellow or blue food coloring and pressing the mixture into pills to be sold as MDMA or ecstasy. Cops are finding fake pills being sold on the street as hydrocodone or Percocet that are actually fentanyl. This is the second alert. On May 20, officials warned about meth and cocaine laced with fentanyl, saying 15 people overdosed in a 12-hour period.
