BETHLEHEM - Police in Bethlehem are putting out an urgent warning after two drug overdoses in a 24-hour period.

They say two people died in two separate incidents in Delmar.


Police say the substance is believed to be a mix of heroin and fentanyl.

They want to remind the public there are Good Samaritan laws which shield people from prosecution if they call police for medical help for people who overdose.
