Needles Found Near Rose Garden

It was nothing more than a regular day for the Hernandez family, they stopped by the rose garden in Riverside Park for a family photo shoot, but what they saw next was not ordinary. The family saw three syringes with and without needles.

“They did appear to be the insulin syringes at the same time there is no way of knowing what was contained inside of the syringes,” Hernandez said.

Syringes could be used to shoot up drugs like heroine and meth, even if their primary use is for insulin. The syringe was laying right by a trash can near the entrance of the garden. When the Hernandez family left the garden they advised a park maintenance employee of the syringes which were then disposed of.
