    SOUTH BURLINGTON — Authorities are warning the public of drugs that may be tainted after responding to several heroin overdoses in South Burlington.

    Police said Sunday the victims all displayed the same symptoms and had to be taken to the hospital. The drugs are believed to be heroin but authorities say they also are testing positive for amphetamines. Police did not say how many people became ill, but said there were “multiple” overdoses.

    The drugs are in unmarked wax glassine bags closed with tape.
