Police are investigating the fatal drug overdoses of three people in the Bronx and two others in Yonkers, all of which may be linked to the same batch of tainted cocaine, officials said.
The Yonkers incidents claimed the lives of a 38-year-old man and a 40-year-old man, one of whom died Friday and the other Saturday. The Bronx overdoses happened in Woodlawn, police said.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help in identifying the source of the cocaine. Tipsters are urged to call the Yonkers Police Narcotics Unit at (914) 377-TIPS.
