Dealer Who Allegedly Provided Heroin in Non-Fatal Overdose Busted
Shawn J. Soper
OCEAN CITY- A Georgetown, Delaware man was arrested on heroin distribution charges last week after an investigation revealed he provided the drugs that caused a local man to overdose before being revived.
Last Tuesday, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officers responded to a residence on Old Landing Road in reference to a CPR in progress which turned out to be a heroin overdose. Upon arrival, OCPD officers located a male individual lying unconscious on the floor of a bedroom in one of the units in the residence. The victim’s wife was administering CPR on him until one of the OCPD officers took over.
Despite the CPR attempts, the victim remained unconscious and unresponsive until Ocean City paramedics arrived and administered Narcan, at which time he became responsive. The victim was transported to Atlantic General Hospital for treatment. It was later learned the victim was on work release from the Worcester County Jail and had been working earlier that night at a midtown restaurant. He was treated at AGH for around 45 minutes until he was returned to the jail.
