From Wmspt Bureau of Police, Capt Jody Miller:
Since Wednesday morning the Williamsport Bureau of Police has responded to an unprecedented number of drug overdose reports throughout the City of Williamsport.
Unfortunately similar incidents have occurred throughout Lycoming and Tioga County. It is being reported that UPMC Susquehanna Health, in Williamsport, has treated 36 cases of drug overdoses during that time. Sadly the Williamsport Bureau of Police can report that one such death can be attributed to an apparent overdose.
The Williamsport Bureau of Police and its partners, Old Lycoming Police, Pennsylvania State Police, Lycoming County Narcotics Unit, FBI, Lycoming County District Attorney’s office has been very active today in investigating these reports. We are asking for assistance from the general public in identifying who is responsible for these overdoses.

We are asking those individuals to reach out and contact us at 570-327- 7560 xt2, 570-329- 4066 or email@example.com
