Since January, Oxford Police say their community has experienced 10 overdose deaths. Fortunately, 16 overdose victims have survived.
On the most recent overdose cases, Oxford authorities have been finding 30mg Percocet pills which are being pressed with Fentanyl and have the same identical markings as the real pharmaceutical markings.
The production of counterfeit pharmaceuticals is growing across the area. Pharmaceutical medication should only be taken when obtained from a licensed pharmacist and used as directed by a licensed physician.
