Wilson – Over the past few days, the Wilson Police Department has seen an increase (more than five) in heroin/opioid overdoses. Our community has suffered at least two fatal overdoses from heroin/opioid use. In the abundance of caution for everyone, it is imperative that we recognize the dangers of this drug and drug usage. The danger of this has always been real; however, the recent overdoses have been alarming. We urge everyone to avoid contact with heroin and/or opioids that may be available. Heroin is a highly addictive drug both physically and mentally. A one-time experimental use could be at least addictive and the worst; deadly. Heroin/opioid type narcotics can be transdermal (absorb through the skin) which creates a danger to anyone who touches it. We are urging our citizens if you see or suspect the drug is heroin not to touch it and call E911 immediately. Each patrol shift carries Narcan in the event they encounter a person who is suffering from an overdose. We are working diligently to rid our streets of these type drugs. The Wilson Police Department is encouraging anyone with information to call the Wilson Police Department at 252-399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at 252-243-2255 or the Drug Hotline at 252-293-5333.

Lori Richardson QuiltsIt took a year for drug users in the rental house next door to me go away. Is there any way to know that the house is safe for someone else to inhabit? It took a year to deal with it because the property managers turned a blind eye as long as the rent was paid.

Wanda DorseyI applaud you efforts. Courtney Carraway’s post is the truth. It can destroy entire families. Keep working as hard as you can to rid the streets of drugs. It must feel like a losing battle but it’s like a cancer growing. If you don’t keep chipping away at it and knocking it down it will completely take over. Keep up the good work. 👏

Beth Stone DewI’m wondering if we need to do field trips to funeral homes and jails now and cemeteries to say ok this is it if you don’t change or if you get on this mess. They start young now but it doesn’t Matter your age either. Stand them in a room full of caskets and tell them to pick one out. It’s heart wrenching to hear of these overdoses. Hopefully more will seek help but we have to help with cost being its not cheap to get recovery.
