Harris County Sheriffs warning of fentanyl laced flyers

Posted: Updated:

Authorities in Houston are warning residents of flyers laced with fentanyl being put on car windshields in the area.

Houston’s KPRC reports, on Tuesday, a sergeant with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office drove herself to the hospital after becoming ill from touching one of the tainted flyers.

The officers said she took the flyer off of her vehicle and was on her way home when she began to feel ill, and decided instead to go to a local hospital.

Investigators say flyers laced with the powerful painkiller were found on the windshields of vehicles at a facility at 601 Lockwood Drive in Houston.  

HCSO posted a warning to their Facebook warning residents of the tainted flyers. Images of the flyers show they contain information about microwave tracking and sonic weapons with,  “Attn: FBI, police, fireman” and “Attn: Police & Fireman” written in bold print at the top. They also included the logo of a group called “Targeted Justice.”

Fentanyl is a powerful painkiller that can be fatal even in small doses.
