City shuts down 3 stores after spice overdoses
Han’s Food Mart, 353 Maple St., Union Street Market, 621 Union St. and TN Convenience, 90 Bridge St., sold a brand called “Smacked” that city officials said is linked to the overdoses, according to Mayor Ted Gatsas.
But since the overdoses began happening on Monday, O’Keefe said police have learned of 34 cases in which people overdosed on spice.
The designer drug began showing up in Manchester in 2011. It became illegal in New Hampshire on Aug. 18, 2012, but continues to be sold because the chemical content is constantly changed by the manufacturers so that it falls within legal limits, O’Keefe said.
Police said a fifth person was found about 6:30 p.m. in Bronstein Park. The woman was unresponsive; information gathered at the scene indicated she may have ingested pice.
This is not the first time the city has dealt with such overdoses.
Calls for help continued through Tuesday, according to police.
New Hampshire Union Leader staff reporter Ted Siefer contributed to this report.
