Police are warning the public about a batch of bad drugs being sold as cocaine in Ithaca.
According to a news release, drugs are being sold as cocaine, when it is not. Instead, alleged cocaine contains opiates.
“This can cause individuals to overdose, potentially fatally, and thus the IPD would like to urge caution to anyone addicted to, or using narcotics recreationally,” the department said.
IPD has recently responded to several overdoses and is working to bring awareness to the issue.
