Officials in Hunterdon Co. are warning residents about the dangers of heroin use.
Hunterdon Co. has seen nine drug-related overdoses in the last six months alone, prosecutors say, with many having been attributed to heroin use.
“We cannot ignore this...This is not a problem limited to urban areas. People are overdosing here in Hunterdon County,” said Posecutor Anthony P. Kearns III.
Police investigated a suspected heroin overdose two weeks ago in Clinton. There was also another man who died of a Heroin overdose in Franklin Twp. earlier in May.
