(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Details are thin at this time, but what we do know, we can source our information as coming from an anonymous drug dealer who was complaining to us.
The drug dealer informed us that the percocets they had been tasked to sell, wouldn’t sell on the streets because of all the heightened awareness of “fake percocets” hitting these streets. The anonymous drug dealer went on to supply us with photos of the tub he had of percocets which had a label on them “hospital use only”, which could mean they were heisted from a hospital in one way or another.
We are not certain which hospital this tub of percocets came from, only that it did indeed come from a hospital or possibly a pharmacy in a hospital or distribution centre. The anonymous source could not be reached as they did not leave a means for me to reach back to them. They utilized our “submit a story” feature on our website, which is completely anonymous.
The dealer had pre-packaged a few ziplock bags of their percocets for what I assume is easier access and so that they do not have to whip out a bottle of almost 1000 pills to make a sale.
What I find interesting is that fentanyl and various colours of “down” have little to no issue selling on the streets. We have been told by addicts at various trap houses that when word gets around that someone overdosed on “down” from a certain dealer, addicts rush to that trap house to get a hit of that specific bag of product. That being said, it appears the percocet crowd isn’t quite ready to make that jump. Most of them consider “down” to be too strong.
How this tub got lifted from a hospital or other link in the chain from manufacturing to patient is uncertain, and we will probably never know. But what we can infer is that there are some people in the healthcare field that are choosing profits over peoples health.
