Valdosta Police

VALDOSTA — Alpha PVP, or “Flakka” at it is commonly referred to, is a synthetic drug which is very dangerous. It can lead to heart attack, and raise the temperature of the body to dangerous levels resulting in kidney damage and even death. Symptoms include hallucinations, paranoia, bizarre/erratic behavior, stripping of clothes (because of high body temperature), and users can be found to be very violent to themselves and others, as well as have an increase in physical strength.

It has been reported that users who previously purchased “Molly” have actually been sold “Flakka” because it is much cheaper and more profitable for the dealers.

“Over the past year, there have been reports of persons who have exhibited the symptoms of Flakka use in Valdosta. It is important that police are notified when it is suspected that an individual has used “Flakka”. Police can assess the situation and try to prevent the user from hurting themselves or others and get the user much needed medical attention” said Lt. Kari Williams.

If anyone has any information regarding ”Flakka”, they can contact the Valdosta Police Narcotics Unit at 229-293-3145 or call the crime tip line at 229-293-3091.
