“This is [a] very dangerous issue!” the Giles County Sheriff’s Department posted on Facebook. “Please share and educate your children to not pick up any folded money they may find in or around businesses, playgrounds etc., without using great caution and even alerting a parent or guardian.”

The sheriff’s department included in the post a photo of a small amount of white powder next to a penny to show how such a small amount of fentanyl can be deadly.
