OHIO – The Ontario Division of Police is releasing this information as a public safety announcement. On September 9th we posted about a seizure of pills that were field identified as Oxycodone. Those pills have been tested at the lab and the test results have revealed that the pills are actually Fentanyl disguised as Oxycodone. As the public is aware, Fentanyl is a very deadly drug.
The total amount of Fentanyl in all pills combined is in excess of 118,000,000 micrograms. The lethal dosage of Fentanyl can be as small as 700 micrograms. Doing the math, these pills could have resulted in over 168,500 deaths. One of the takeaways from this incident is to see the appearance of these two very similar looking, yet very different pills. The picture on the top are the pills we seized. The bottom is a pic of a pharmaceutical manufactured Oxycodone pill. You cannot tell a difference.
