Fentanyl/Methamphetamine Dangerous Drug Warning


SURGE IN FATAL FENTANYL OVERDOSES AMONG HOMELESS CONNECTED TO METHAMPHETAMINE CONTAINING FENTANYL


Over the past three weeks, seven homeless residents in San Jose have suffered fatal overdoses from methamphetamine containing fentanyl. Methamphetamine containing fentanyl was detected in and identified with two homeless residents found deceased together on August 11, as well as one on August 9, one on August 7, one on August 6, one on August 2 and one on July 24.


The District Attorney’s Office is deeply concerned that there is an extremely toxic batch of the already potent drug circulating within the County.


“COVID is not the only generational health crisis we are facing in Santa Clara County, and Delta is not the only deadly variant,” DA Jeff Rosen said.
