Heroin crackdown on the Northshore

A major Heroin crackdown was announced today on the Northshore by a multi-agency task force.   Federal agents operating with local police arrested 35 suspects since February.

Slidell Police Detective Daniel Seuzeneau says when the pain pill market started to dry up,  users turned to Heroin.

''Pain pills are now harder to get due to some new laws that were passed and Heroin unfortunately is a cheaper alternative,'' he said.

Slidell Police Detective Daniel Seuzeneau:

DEA agent Debbie Weber says for users, overdoses can lead to death because they don't know what they're getting.

''The drug dealers that are selling this poison, you don't know what they're mixing it with,'' said Weber who compares injecting Heroin to Russian Roulette.
