Kitimat RCMP say counterfeit prescription pain killers may be behind a couple of recent drug overdoses in the community.
Staff Sergeant Phil Harrison says officers responded to two separate overdoses involving similar pills March 11th and 12th.
Harrison says the fake oxy has been showing up right across B.C. and has now made its way to the Northwest.
The pills have been sent for analysis, but it will likely be weeks before test results come back.
While both of the overdose victims recovered, Harrison is advising any recreational drug users that don’t feel well or those that see someone in medical distress to call 9-1-1.
