JANESVILLE - Investigators believe a stronger batch of heroin may be invading the city.

It comes after two people overdosed on heroin Wednesday within hours of each other.  Police say both of them survived.

Police warn heroin users that you can't tell the potency of heroin just by looking at it.  The new batch may carry even graver consequences than traditional heroin.
