State police in Sandusky looking for potentially fatal doses of Ketamine
SANDUSKY — State police here say they hope to find a batch of stolen Ketamine before it kills someone.
The drug, an anesthetic in the same category as PCP and nitrous oxide, was stolen from a Marlette-area veterinary clinic over the weekend, said Sgt. Doug Rogers.
“This particular drug had been altered by the clinic to treat a specific animal and is fatal to humans if ingested,” Rogers said.
He would not release additional details.
Ketamine, also known as Special K, is sold in liquid form in small pharmaceutical bottles but it can be cooked down to a white powder for snorting.
Users say the drug causes a sensation similar to an out-of-body experience, a floating, dream-like feeling. In higher doses, it can produce hallucinations and amnesia.
