Counterfeit Xanax Pills Warning

Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is issuing a warning to residents of Waterloo Region after receiving three separate reports of suspected overdoses in the Hespeler area of Cambridge.

In the past week, three male teens have been taken to hospital with suspected near-fatal overdoses involving what is believed to be counterfeit Xanax pills.

The pills were consumed by youth in the Hespeler area of Cambridge.

It is believed these pills are continuing to be sold in Hespeler and, possibly, throughout Waterloo Region.

Waterloo Regional Police strongly encourage parents and caregivers to have a conversation with their children surrounding the dangers of consuming non-prescribed drugs. Substances not received from a pharmacy may contain other substances and may increase the risk of overdose.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 519-570-9777 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
