8 Ohio Deputies, 2 DEA Agents Hospitalized for Possible Fentanyl Exposure

November 07, 2018  | 

Deputies from the Cuyahoga County (OH) Sheriff's Office were hospitalized Wednesday for precautionary measures for fentanyl exposure, Spokesperson for Cuyahoga County Mary Louise Madigan confirmed.

At 5:30 a.m., deputies were responding to a residence in Rocky River for what appeared to be a raid involving DEA agents, reports News 5 Cleveland.

A total of eight deputy detectives from the sheriff's office and two DEA agents were transported to Fairview Hospital to be checked for exposure to fentanyl, Madigan said.

Multiple ambulances were on scene, and used nasal naloxone doses littered the street.

Two children were removed from the home and taken to the hospital for a wellness check. A man was taken into custody but it's unclear what charges he may face.
