Notable Historical Events Related to Drug Use in Watertown, NY and Jefferson County
In November of 2020 in Watertown, NY, Attorney General Letitia James busted three drug trafficking operations. Fifty-four individuals were charged for conspiring with these operations that were trafficking fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine.
These charges included various accounts of Criminal Sale and Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Conspiracy to commit those crimes.
This investigation, known as “Operation Heat Wave,” lead officers to nearly 3 kilograms of cocaine, hundreds of bags of heroin and fentanyl, and Oxycodone and Hydrocodone. The drugs had an estimated street value of $315,500.
Watertown Fire Chief Matt Timerman stated that within one month, only one overdose was able to be treated with a single use of Narcan.
“We’re often having to give multiple doses. All the rest were all multiple doses, which means the severity of the overdoses are larger than they have been in the past,” Timerman said.
The spike in drug-related overdoses has caused a crackdown on drug use, according to Public Health Planner Steve Jennings.
“Our stance is we’re not going to give up on people. We know if they keep going down this road it could kill them, but we want to do everything we can to try to help them and try to stop it,” Jennings states.
