“Even the dealers on the street saying, ‘I’m selling heroin, or I’m selling fentanyl, but actually they’re selling morphine, or they’re selling tramadol or they don’t even know what they have,” explains Lt. Kevin Kinnard, director of the Brown County Drug Task Force…When investigators execute a drug bust, they have to figure out what baggies of pills and powders actually contain…Using this [instrument] means no more taking the drugs out of bags and creating potential exposure to dangerous, or even lethal, chemicals. “We’re concerned about accidental overdoses when we’re processing, for instance, opioids and synthetic opioids,” says Kinnard. “It is an extra safety precaution for us.”
