Inhaling or “huffing” air duster has became an increasing problem and addiction over the recent years. Over the past two months our department has responded to numerous reports of someone huffing air duster, several of the instances in which arrest’s were affected. We have also responded to at least one incident which death occurred from huffing air duster. Huffing air duster is extremely dangerous and unpredictable. Not only are the immediate effects serious and life threatening, but the long term effects of huffing air duster can cause permanent brain damage that can lead to irreversible neurological deficits. Other long term results of huffing air duster can damage major organs and the central nervous system. Just some things to think about for the short term effects or the “immediate” response from huffing, aside from “sudden sniffing death” by causing fatal heart failure even the first time its tried, you could expect things such as loss of consciousness, seizures, asphyxiation, urinating on yourself, vomiting and many other unwanted or unexpected side effects. Huffing air duster could lead to endless legal consequences such as, Driving While Intoxicated, Public Intoxication, and a specific charge of Breathing, inhaling, possessing, selling, or drinking certain intoxicating compounds. Other legal factors could include more serious criminal charges such as Negligent Homicide or Manslaughter. The Batesville Police Department will have a zero tolerance policy towards individuals who are caught huffing air duster. We will be monitoring businesses that sell air duster and watching for individuals purchasing it for reasons other than its intended use. The citizens of Batesville are extremely vigilant and quick to alert us about any suspicious activity such as huffing air duster. As noted above, huffing air duster can become an addiction. If any individual feels they have an addiction to air duster, there are numerous support and rehabilitation programs that we can suggest to individuals seeking help. If anyone observes any individual that might be huffing air duster or any other intoxicating compound, you are encouraged to contact Independence County Central Dispatch at 870-698-2450 or the Batesville Police Department at 870-569-8111

*********UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE********** During this investigation the vehicles and owners have been identified. We have spoken to the operator of one of the vehicles who is a licensed bail bond agent. There were some agents in the city last night trying to locate an individual. The bail bond agent did follow proper protocol and notify Independence County Central Dispatch that they were in the area. We would like to thank everyone who provided information regarding this post! We are asking for the public’s assistance on identifying these two vehicles. These vehicles approached an individual last night at a local hospital in a manner consistent with which law enforcement might contact someone. The encounter was brief and non confrontational. We have checked with law enforcement agencies that could be operating in the city but have not confirmed these vehicles to be law enforcement related. As the encounter does concern us, we do not want to alarm the public to anything we believe to be an extended threat. It should also be noted that during this encounter there was NOT any use of blue lights or any other type of emergency lighting from the vehicles in question. One of the photos shows what appears to be a large dent in the back of the SUV. We ask that anyone who might recognize these vehicles or have any information concerning them to please contact Chief Alan Cockrill or Lieutenant Kyle Williford with the Batesville Police Department. Please share this post as the vehicles could not be local.
