Public Safety Advisory

In relation to the above-noted incident police seized a number of fentanyl blotters. Investigators believe that there may be similar fentanyl blotters in existence within the city. Given the nature of the blotters, and the close timing of Halloween, the Winnipeg Police Service is advising caution should the public encounter any of these items, which appear to be harmless pieces of paper.

The blotters have a graphic of a Halloween witch riding a broom. The public is asked to call 911 if any of these blotters are located. They are considered extremely dangerous and not to handled.
