Saskatoon police issue warning about fentanyl-laced cocaine after two deaths this weekend

"The investigation into the deaths is ongoing, and once the major crime unit has completed that investigation, they'll share their findings with the provincial Crown and the federal Crown", Supt.

Saskatoon Police Superintendent Dave Haye gives an update on the weekend's overdoses at Saskatoon Police Service Headquarters on March 12, 2018. "If it's recommended by them to proceed with the charges in relation to the death, we'll certainly follow through with that".

Six men and four women are now facing drug-related charges, including possession and intent to traffic drugs.

"If you have purchased cocaine from the person with the above cellular number we are urging you to turn it into the SPS front desk so we can properly dispose of it", a news release, sent Sunday evening, read.

"We're more interested in public safety at this point".

Haye said while city police are aware of other places in Canada where cocaine has been cut with fentanyl, he believes it's the first time the practice has been seen in Saskatoon.

But that isn't to say fentanyl-laced products aren't out there and that drug users don't need to remain vigilant to their dangers, said a police spokeswoman.

He said it was "unprecedented" for police to release such information, but said it was done in consultation with both provincial and federal Crown prosecutors.
