These little round blue pills marked M 30 contain mixtures of opiates, including fentanyl – a very potent and often deadly synthetic opioid.




An increase in drug activity and overdoses worries the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and attempts to arrest him.

“We’re seeing a slight increase in the area of ​​this type of drug and that’s something we just want people to be aware of,” Sheriff Shannon Oliver said.

Currently, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says the increase in reported drug activity is primarily in the communities of Spruce Pine and Phil Campbell.

“It’s a very dangerous drug and in pill form it’s just easier to overdose and lose lives in the community,” said Phil Campbell Mayor Michael McQuary.

Sheriff Oliver said a few deaths reported in recent months could be linked to increased drug activity.

Several reports have been made regarding the small round blue pills marked M 30.

They contain mixtures of opiates, including fentanyl – a very potent and often deadly synthetic opioid.

Right now, Sheriff Oliver says he thinks whoever brings it here isn’t from the area.

Several people have already been arrested, but Sheriff Oliver says more people are believed to be behind the drug activity.

“There is no doubt that there are others who are responsible,” Sheriff Oliver said. “We’re going to do our best to try to locate them as best we can.”

“I’m very confident they’re going to get to the bottom of it,” McQuary said.

Sheriff Oliver says the other concern about drugs in Franklin County is the possibility of officers coming into contact with her.
