Two police officers and two evidence technicians were on a service call when they were exposed to the powdery substance, according to Sherry Corcoran with the Parker Police Department. Corcoran did not provide any details about the nature of the call the officers were responding to.

Field testing indicated the substance was initially fentanyl, but further testing revealed the substance was cocaine and methamphetamine.

All four were checked out and released with no effects.

The drugs were picked up at an undisclosed hospital and the woman who was in possession is now under investigation but had not been arrested, as of 2 p.m.

Substantial amounts of cocaine and meth are regularly processed by the Parker Police Department, which also handles all of Lone Tree's narcotics calls.

(This article has been updated to indicate that the substance originally believed to be fentanyl was determined to be other drugs.)
