Public Safety Advisory – Fentanyl

The Estevan Police Service is alerting the public about the possibility of Fentanyl in our community and the extreme risks associated with this illicit drug. Police suspect a supply of Fentanyl may be present in Estevan with high potency.

Fentanyl and related compounds are a serious danger to public safety. These substances can come in several colours and forms, including powder, blotter paper, tablets and spray. Fentanyl can look similar to cocaine and Crystal Meth and may be mixed into these illicit drugs. These substances can be absorbed through the skin or accidentally inhaled if airborne powder.

Fentanyl effects can work very quickly, so in cases of suspected exposure, it is important to call EMS immediately and seek medical help.

The Estevan Police Service is advising the public not to consume illegal street drugs. If anyone locates a suspicious substance, do not touch or handle it in anyway and contact police immediately.

Anyone with information about the presence of Fentanyl or other illicit drugs in Estevan is asked to contact Estevan Police at 306-634-4767 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-tips.
