A warning to pass along to everybody, including your loved ones battling addiction.

Yesterday, the Flint Police Operations Facebook page posted a status about a "bad batch" of heroin that is circulating around Genesee County. They reported having 12 overdoses in just three hours, one of which was fatal.

The post reads:

PSA: There is a batch of heroin in Genesee County that is bad. There have been over 12 overdoses in the last 3 hours, including at least one that was fatal. EMS crews are having a hard time keeping up. If you know someone who used heroin, please advise them to stay away from any heroin they have bought recently. If you use heroin, we strongly advise you to not use anything you have bought recently. #GeneseeCounty
