Recent spate of overdoses a reminder of heroin blight PDF Print E-mail

Four near-deaths in a week illustrate extent of problem, authorities say

   If you need proof that heroin is becoming a significant problem in Ozaukee County, consider this — last week, four suspected heroin overdoses were reported to authorities.

    “From Friday to Friday, there were four,” Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Lt. Rodney Galbraith said. “There were three in less than 24 hours.”

    Fortunately, he said, all the victims survived.

    The first case occurred in the City of Cedarburg early May 2, when a 25-year-old man overdosed, Galbraith said.

    Then, between May 7 and 8, three overdoses were reported — one each in the cities of Mequon and Port Washington and the Town of Saukville, he said.

    In Port Washington, police were called to a home on the city’s north side just before midnight May 7 for a 24-year-old who wasn’t breathing.

    The man was given two doses of Narcan, a drug used to counter the effects of opiate overdoses, by his mother before police arrived, Police Chief Kevin Hingiss told the Police and Fire Commission Monday.
