Carfentanil Found In Hanover Drugs.

Hanover | by Kevin Bernard  

Police say the highly dangerous drug was found in other drugs seized in September.

For the first in Grey Bruce history, police have seized Carfentanil along with several other drugs.

Hanover police chief Chris Knolls says back on September 18th, Hanover police along with the OPP Grey Bruce Community Crime Unit executed a search warrant at a home in the 300 block of 8th street.

Investigators seized meth, marijuana, heroin and steroids along with prohibited knives, ammunition and money.

The total value of the drugs seized was put at 3 thousand dollars.

Chief Knoll says now, they have learned from Health Canada that some of the drugs had been cut with Carfentanil. 

It is considered to be 100 times stronger than its derivative, fentanyl, and as much as 10,000 times stronger than morphine. 

A single dose of 0.02 mg, which is smaller than a grain of salt, can be fatal to a human.

This is believed to be the first seizure of Carfentanil in the Grey Bruce Region.   

Hanover Police Chief Chris Knoll wants to remind the public that taking any illegal substance from unknown origins can be harmful and potentially lethal.
