EUGENE, Ore. – First responders are noticing people having a more severe reaction to an unknown drug on the streets of Eugene, prompting a warning from police.

Officials said the drug, possibly methamphetamine, is causing profuse sweating, elevated vital signs and causing people to make unusual verbal statements.

The odd response was noticed by Eugene-Springfield Fire EMS and Eugene police over the past couple days, a news release said.

“The behavior is described as erratic, confused, unpredictable and sometimes with violent outbursts,” officials said.

Anymore who witnesses this behavior should call 911.
