"There's a lot of times the user doesn't know what they're putting in their body,” he said. “They suspect they're buying heroin and it's fentanyl or carfentanil or whatever the drug is. So, they're playing Russian roulette.”

Police on scene said there have been over 180 overdoses in Sandusky this year.
