It is believed “counterfeit” Oxycodone pills laced with fentanyl are being sold throughout Clark County. These pills are likely being purchased illicitly and not through a pharmacy. Fentanyl is a dangerous, powerful Schedule II narcotic responsible for an epidemic of overdose deaths within the United States.

The Vancouver Police Department advises people to beware of taking prescription medication that is not purchased from a pharmacy or to take medication that has not been prescribed to you.
