3 Arlington police officers treated after exposure to heroin smoke

ARLINGTON — Three police officers received medical attention this week after exposure to heroin smoke.


The Daily Herald of Everett reported Wednesday that the officers from Arlington were treated Monday after police said a woman smoked heroin in front of them at a hotel, where they were looking for someone with a warrant.

They were taken to Cascade Valley Hospital with nausea and headaches after they returned to the station, the paper reported.

They have returned to duty, and their vehicles and clothing have been decontaminated, along with areas of the police station.
