- Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit makes several drug related arrests
Both police and the Office of the Chief Coroner are investigating these deaths.
At this time, they are suspected to be drug overdoses, therefore not criminal deaths, but the possibility of fentanyl involvement makes it extremely important to focus the awareness of the Regina public now on the risks associated with the use of any illicit drugs but, most importantly, the increased risk associated with illegal fentanyl trafficking and use.
