Bellefonte police responded to three drug overdoses this week in the borough, including one that yielded 13 bags suspected to contain heroin.
Police said two overdoses resulted from controlled prescription medications, and the third involved heroin. While responding to the heroin call, officers seized the suspicious bags in addition to prescription medicines, syringes and other drug paraphernalia from a borough residence.
All three overdose victims were treated at Mount Nittany Medical Center, police said, and charges are pending in each case. Police did not provide dates, addresses or further details.
