A sergeant with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Texas was hospitalized after touching a flyer, laced with fentanyl, that was left on her car.

The officer was leaving the Lockwood Detective Bureau in Houston on Tuesday afternoon when she removed a flyer from her windshield prior to entering her vehicle. Only minutes after driving, the officer experienced various symptoms including lightheadedness and was taken to the hospital, according to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.


About 15 to 20 flyers were found on the windshields of several vehicles, reported Chron. Only one has been tested for the potentially fatal opioid, and the others were sent to a lab for further analysis, according to Jason Spencer, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The flyers appear to be a message to law enforcement and say, “Attn: FBI, Police, Firemen” and continue to note that people are being tracked with microwaves. The flyers also contain a web address, targetedjustice.com, an organization whose mission is to “stop the global use of Directed Energy Weapons against civilians, illegal surveillance, and organized stalking.”

“We’re on high alert at this time because obviously, with this being a police facility, we don’t know if it was intended to target law enforcement or perhaps it was just randomly placed here,” said Gonzalez.

The sergeant has been released from the hospital.
