Police looking into three heroin deaths in Bristol

BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — The Bristol Police Department is currently investigating three separate heroin overdose deaths within a four day span.

At one of the scenes heroin packaging was found stamped with President Ronald Reagan as well as the name Reagan stamped below it in red ink. Although this stamp can be linked to this overdose it is not unusual for a batch to be distributed with multiple stamps.

In April of 2015, in an effort to reduce deaths from opioid overdoses, the Bristol Police Department deployed a Naloxone program. Officers who have First Responder responsibilities have been trained how to use the medication as part of the officer’s medical equipment.

The Bristol Police Department’s Narcotics Division is working with regional drug enforcement agencies on the investigation into the deaths. If you have any information to call the Bristol Police Department at (860) 584-3051.
