PIKESVILLE, Md. —The growing concern from forensic scientists and law enforcement officials alike in Maryland is that someone who actually needs oxycodone for a medical reason could take a laced pill.
So far, there have been three such situations in Maryland where the tainted pills have been found.
"If you're buying something off the street, you don't know what you're getting and what's in it," Anne Arundel County police spokesman Marc Limansky said.
It's a simple statement, but one that could save lives.
Since last year, Anne Arundel County police said there have been two occasions where police found oxycodone pills cut with the deadly opioid fentanyl.
