Over the last approximately 24 hours Brattleboro Police Officers have responded to 11 overdoses. This is a significant number of overdoses for the timeframe.
While there were some commonalities observed in a few cases, preliminary investigation has not shown a distinct connection between all of the overdoses.
Preliminary investigation has also uncovered that multiple “stamps” were observed or otherwise confirmed in relation to these overdoses; they were not all from one “stamp.”
It is believed that Naloxone was deployed at each overdose.
Two subjects were life-flighted to area hospitals; as of now we do not have any new information to provide on their conditions.
Each of these incidents is still being actively investigated.
Anyone with any information regarding these incidents is encouraged to call the Brattleboro Police Department at 802-257-7950. Alternatively, anonymous calls can be made to our tip line at 802-251-8188.
