3 arrested in Brattleboro for dealing marijuana laced with fentanyl
BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (WCAX) - Three people face charges after Brattleboro Police said they were dealing marijuana laced with fentanyl.
On Tuesday, officers executed a search warrant at a home on Brattle St. in Brattleboro. Police say they found several containers of marijuana that were laced with fentanyl.
Gregory Larose, 50, Lindsi Houle, 38, and Steven Miller, 34, all from Brattleboro, were charged with drug possession and are due in court in January.
Officers say lacing cannabis is part of a new trend. Just last week, Brattleboro officers say they had to revive someone who overdosed on marijuana laced with fentanyl.
In Connecticut, officials believe nearly 40 drug overdoses across the state since July may be linked to marijuana laced with fentanyl and are warning the public about the potential danger.
