Cumberland County authorities battling opioid crisis

FAYETTEVILLE, North Carolina (WTVD) -- Cumberland County authorities are battling an opioid crisis including heroin and fentanyl.

Law enforcement officers say fentanyl, also know, as "white china," is cheap and up to 50 times stronger than heroin.

Recently, six people overdosed in one day and two died.

For now, law enforcement agencies are sounding a warning about the drugs and stocking up on Narcan and other overdose antidotes.
