Pittsfield Police Warn Of Dangerous “Power Heroin”

Dec 4, 2019

The Pittsfield, Massachusetts police department says a potentially deadly batch of heroin has hit the streets.

Lieutenant Gary Traversa says the heroin has been linked to fatal and non-fatal overdoses in other Western Massachusetts communities, and goes by many names.

“Power, which we’ve also got information was rebagged into Avengers 2 and Red Bull, and also a fourth one that is highly dangerous that is labeled Jumanji,” the lieutenant told WAMC.

Traversa confirmed to WAMC that it has been found in the city already.
