There is a deadly new pill being spread around the Tri-Cities and the police want you to know about it. The pills look like blue prescription pills but are really made by a drug dealer and are made with Fentanyl, a synthetic opiate that is 50 to 100 times stronger that morphine. The pills are called "blues" or "mexi's" on the street according to the Kennewick Pd Facebook post. The pills are a dangerous because they are not made legally and the dose in each pill is inconsistent making it easy to overdose.

The police are trying to track down the people responsible for trafficking these pills into our area. If you have any information about this case contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or the Kennewick Police Department at 509-628-0333.
