DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Words of warning from area police this holiday season if you plan on getting high for the holidays. First, don't do it — it's illegal. But second, if you use Heroin, you could die.

This alert was just issued by the Delray Beach Police Department:

The Delray Beach Police Department is currently investigating a significant spike in heroin overdoses. Since December 1, 2013, the Department has handled in excess of 20 cases with one of those resulting in a death (pending toxicology reports). The Delray Beach Police Department is working with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Drug lab and seized narcotics are being tested. The twenty plus cases that have been received since December 1, 2013, are currently being handled by our Vice, Intelligence and Narcotics Unit.

While it's unclear if there is any relationship at all, two young men were arrested by Boca Raton Police over the past 48-hours on Heroin poession charges. Cory James Baran and Cory Max Bolick, both of White Oak Avenue, were booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and later released on their own recognizance.

Have information? Call your local police department, or Palm Beach County CrimeStoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS. You may remain anonymous, and you just may save someone's life.
