Police in this Clinton County city about an hour northeast of Cincinnati are turning to the public's help as they investigate a rash of heroin overdoses less than a week into the new year.
Twelve people have overdosed on the drug since Jan. 1, including two who died, said Sgt. Ron Fithen.
The majority of the other 10 who overdosed were revived with Narcan, he said.
Police suspect the heroin is mixed with fetanyl or some other substance to make it more potent.
"We know it's probably a stronger strain of heroin we are seeing," Fithen said. "It may be a heroin/fetanyl mixture. It makes it more lethal."
Police are asking anyone with information contact them at 937-382-8477.
