At approximately 9am this morning, Jasper County Deputies responded to a possible overdose at a
residence in the 42,000 block of US Hwy 96S in Buna. Upon arrival, a responding deputy administered
Narcan to a 40yo W/M and it was successful. The male was transported by EMS in stable condition. The
substance used is suspected to be heroin and fentanyl.
Equipping officers with the necessary equipment and training can be the difference between life and
death, for both themselves and citizens. With a recent increase in heroin and fentanyl in our area, we
are prioritizing narcotics investigations and ensuring that deputies are properly trained in the use and
administration of Narcan.
“It is imperative that we provide the best and most needed equipment to our officers, so that they can
effectively serve the citizens of Jasper County.” -Chief Scott Duncan.
