SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - Police think they've caught the man selling a strong batch of heroin that has caused a series of drug overdoses in Chittenden County.

Two weeks ago, doctors at Fletcher Allen Health Care alerted the media after nine overdoses in one day, which is an unusually high number.

Police say the packets of heroin in at least one of those overdoses and another this week contained the words “DO NOT ENTER.”

The latest overdose victim helped police set up a controlled buy and arrested Jason Schofield for selling those same packets.
