Oxford House RCMP and Shamattawa RCMP are advising of dangerous illicit drug in circulation

Press Release

Oxford House RCMP and Shamattawa RCMP are advising the communities of Bunibonibee Cree Nation and Kisematawa First Nation of a potentially dangerous illicit drug circulating in their area.

The concerning illicit drug is being distributed in pill form and may potentially contain fentanyl. The pills have a greenish tinge and resemble an oxycodone tablet. They are locally known as “green beans”.

Officers believe this pill is related to a number of overdoses and one death over the last 3 days and are warning anyone in these communities to immediately and safely dispose of any illicit drug.

The RCMP are asking anyone with information to call Oxford House RCMP at 204-538-2211, Shamattawa RCMP at 204-565-2350, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com.
