Around 11:30 am on the morning of September 18th, an evidence supervisor was found suffering from possible exposure to fentanyl. While assisting him, two other employees were exposed. All three required transport to hospital facilities, and all three are currently in stable condition. Our offices are closed while LSP hazmat clears the room of any further exposure. We ask that the public keep our deputies and their family in your prayers as they recover.
