Powerful, dangerous strand of fentanyl found in Janesville

Posted: Updated:

JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- The Janesville Police Department sent out a warning about a dangerous drug found in the area.

Officers say there are stronger, more potent strands of fentanyl being found in investigations.

The victims are consuming it, believing it's heroin and have a higher chance of overdosing.

The drug not only creates a danger to the victim, but also emergency responders.

Fentanyl can be absorbed through the skin.

The more potent strands are resistant to Narcan, the drug which reverses opioid overdoses.
