MIDDLEBURY, Conn. (AP) - Police are looking for information about a new hallucinogenic drug after several people overdosed at an electronic dance music concert at Quassy Amusement Park.

The Republican-American reports that Richard Wildman, acting Middlebury police chief, said an unidentified 19-year-old man was set to be the last concert-goer released from the hospital late Monday. He suffered a heart condition after taking the drug, 2C-P.

Seven people were hospitalized Saturday night.

Wildman said four people fell down almost at the same time. Two had seizures and another concert-goer was not breathing and did not have a pulse.

Two officers administered CPR and used a defibrillator to restart his heart.

One person was charged with interfering with police.

Wildman said a database had little information on 2C-P, but police did more research through an Internet search.

    Law enforcement officials from coast to coast say street gangs are shying away from wearing their colors and are covering up or even altering their tattoos to avoid detection by police.  Hartford, Connecticut, Police Sgt. Johnmichael O'Hare says gone are the days when the Bloods wore red from head to toe. All you'll see now, he says, is maybe a red handkerchief sticking out of a back pocket.
