After an "unprecedented number of overdoses" recently, officials say fentanyl-laced drugs are being sold in the Hudson Valley.

According to the Ulster County District's Attorney's office, there has been an "unprecedented number of overdoses" in Ulster County, particularly in the Town of Saugerties and the Town of Hunter.

There were 12 overdoses in the Town of Hunter last weekend, officials say.

Evidence obtained from the Ulster County District's Attorney's Office suggests that two different heroin packages containing specific stamps are tainted and contain fentanyl.

The first package is a red-colored stamp depicting a basketball player and the name Lebron underneath the picture. The second is a blue-colored stamp depicting two handguns and the words “Young Guns,” officials say.
