Drug overdoses due to fentanyl, meth and other drugs are still a problem in Prescott Valley. Police say from October 2019 until March of 2020, there were 25 overdose calls involving heroin, oxycodone, fentanyl, xanex and meth, with ten resulting in deaths. During that time, officers used NARCAN on eight separate occasions. Since January, Partners Against Narcotic Traffic Task Force, or PANT, has either led or assisted in 14 cases regarding overdose investigations involving fentanyl and has seized over 260 mimic pills containing fentanyl. The investigations have led to around a dozen arrests and the identification of several people suspected of illegal drug sales. Police are asking the community to remain active in the lives of young people and look for warning signs that something may be wrong. If you are facing a hard time and are struggling and need someone to talk to, call the Crisis Stabilization Unit 24 hours a day, seven days a weeks at (928) 445-5211.
