Two Greendale police officers and a Milwaukee police officer were treated for exposure to fentanyl Friday in two separate incidents.

Officers said they spotted a man and a woman in a stolen vehicle in the parking lot. While searching that vehicle, officers say they removed a purse that had an unknown substance in it. One officer began feeling ill while still on the scene, the other showed symptoms back at the station. They were both given Narcan and taken to the hospital as a precaution.
