Police in W. Va identify source of suspected heroin-laced vape pens
Police in West Virginia said they identified a source of suspected heroin-laced vaping solutions while investigating overdoses that sickened two high school students.
Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston said in a news release an underage high school student has been identified as a suspect.
Preston said detectives obtained a search warrant that resulted in the recovery of more than 100 charged vaping solutions, packaging materials, marijuana and empty vaping cartridges that were being filled with the suspected solution.
Preston said one of the vaping pens was contaminated with heroin and other dangerous chemicals.
Morgantown police spokesman Andrew Stacy said he did not know whether the two students remain hospitalized and that the exact source of the vaping pens that made them sick last week remains under investigation.
