Van Recovered Blocks Away

Monday 10:06 am – Stolen Church Van Found on Mill Drive!

The church van sustained little damage. The thief (thieves) apparently tried going down an alley that was blocked, then backed up and hit a fence and got stuck.

We learned from the pastor’s wife that the van was equipped with a locking gas cap and had little fuel on board. She said they wouldn’t get far.

The van was recovered just a few blocks from the church on Mill Drive.

Understanding Narcan

“Narcan 4mg (naloxone) is a life-saving nasal spray medication used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose.”

Panhandle Public Health District

Looking at the comments from our post yesterday. It is apparent that many people do not understand the purpose of Narcan.

Narcan is a life saving drug administered by a third party to revive a heavily overdosed drug user.

It is not a typical medication made to make them feel better or to deal with their addiction. It is used in an EMERGENCY OVERDOSE situation where the person’s breathing slows down so much that they need to be revived to live.

By allowing the public to have narcan in their possession, it gives the non drug user the ability to save the life of anyone, including someone who might have accidentally or unintentionally come in contact with dangerous opioids, including the ever popular fentanyl.

On the flip side, we do believe that it may enable some drug user cultures to continue to abuse drugs… because they will have a free ticket back to life… IF someone has some narcan.
