Three Overdose on 'Pink Packaged' Heroin

JAMESTOWN, NY - Police in the Southern Tier are warning of pink packaged heroin that led to three overdoses Friday, one of them fatal.

Two of the incidents took place in the Village of Lakewood, the other in Falconer. Police believe more of the narcotic is still out on the streets.

It's not known at this time what is causing the overdose issue; but police say the heroin may be overly potent of tainted with another substance.

Anyone with information about the origin of these packages is asked to contact Jamestown Police at 483-7537 or leave an anonymous tip at 483-TIPS (8477). All calls will be kept confidential.

ATV riders rescued at Sturgeon Point

STURGEON POINT, NY - A search-and-rescue operation was conducted off the Sturgeon Point Marina in the Town of Evans Saturday evening.

Police say two 18-year-olds called 911 after their ATVs got stuck out on the ice. It took crews a while to locate them but they were eventually rescued about five miles out. Fortunately, they were not hurt.

Erie County's Air One helicopter and nearby fire companies were called in to help. Once rescuers got out there they realized even more people were stuck on the ice.

A North Evans Fire District chief told us the snow was deeper than the ATV riders had anticipated. Snowmobiles had no trouble in the deep snow, however, and the fire chief told us they were helpful in getting people to shore.

An ambulance was brought in to provide warmth and water to those who were rescued.

No charges for leaving dog out in cold

CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY, NY - A dog owner in Chautauqua County is facing a lot of harassment since neighbors started seeing his German Shepherd left outside.

Two On Your Side's Erica Brecher says the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Office investigated and concluded there was no sign of animal cruelty.

Said Sheriff Joe Gerace, "It's more a story of what social media can do. The dog is in good condition. It's an outside dog. It's got a beautiful coat of fur, and everyone is in agreement the dog owner cares about his dog, we care about the animal, and the dog's in good shape."

Gerace says he understands where people with good intentions are coming from, but it's important not to always believe everything you see on the Internet.

Additionally, the phone calls police received were clogging up the dispatch center, which has been disruptive to fire, emergency medical services and police.
