HUDSON, N.H. (AP) - A spike in people dying from fatal overdoses has led police in a New Hampshire town to send out a warning.

Detective Sgt. Thomas Scotti tells WMUR-TV that Hudson has seen nine overdoses over the last month, including three fatal overdoses.

Scotti said typically the department sees about 50 overdoses in a year or four a month.

Scotti said factors could include dealers mixing drugs. It’s common for individuals seeking treatment to relapse, which can be deadly.

Meanwhile, other New Hampshire cities like Nashua and Manchester are seeing a decrease in fatal overdoses.
