Overdose Response Leads to Methamphetamine Arrest

At approximately 10:33 p.m. Sunday, Frankfort Police were dispatched to an overdose in the 600 Block of Delphi Avenue.  Upon arriving, Lieutenant Cesar Munoz found two individuals performing CPR on an unresponsive male.  Lt. Munoz administered Narcan and the subject was able to begin breathing on his own.  Officers clearly observed multiple drugs and paraphernalia in the bedroom in plain sight.  A search warrant was requested with the assistance of the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office and the Frankfort Police Narcotics Detectives.

According to Chief Troy Bacon, “We deployed Narcan to all of officers a few years ago to enhance our ability to save lives. Our first priority is to provide lifesaving medical treatment then transition into a criminal investigation if evidence is discovered by officers.”

Officers arrested 28-year-old Brad L. Ray of Frankfort for preliminary charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Hypodermic Needle, Possession of a Narcotic Drug, Possession of Legend Drug, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Possession of Controlled Substance and Possession of Marijuana.

“I am grateful for the quick response of officers that ultimately saved a life as well as quickly recognizing evidence of a crime in plain view that lead to a warrant and arrest”, Bacon said.

Ray was transported to the Clinton County Jail where he will await formal charges by the Clinton County Prosecutor’s Office.

He was out on bond for a prior drug related arrest by FPD in December.

      Please tell me why in the world would anyone continue to save life only to repeat and repeat. This is like suicide. It’s not a pleasant topic to speak about, but not prosecuting these types of crimes is just plain wrong in my opinion. I was glad to see an arrest follow-up and proud of our Police Department.
