Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella announced an investigation into an overdose death in Hackensack as well as the recent surge in fentanyl-related overdoses in Bergen County.
"We must sound the alarms. You have to assume that any drug bought on the street – whether powder or pill – contains fentanyl and can kill you.” -Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella
“The Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office is committed to combating the deadly effects of fentanyl through targeting suppliers and traffickers of narcotics. Although fentanyl has plagued our state for several years, it is now being seen in both recreational and black market medications and pills." - BCPO Chief Jason Love
