The revival of a man with Narcan – a medicine used to help people overdosing on an opioid – led to a search warrant Monday and the arrest of multiple people at a home in the Town of Sturgeon Bay.
The Door County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in the town where a 42-year-old Sturgeon Bay man was revived by bystanders at the scene with Narcan, and he was transported by ambulance to the Door
County Medical Center for treatment, according to a press release issued by the sheriff’s office.
Door County Drug Task Force investigators applied for and were granted a search warrant for the residence, according to the sheriff’s office. Their investigation led to numerous arrests, including a 19-year-old Sturgeon Bay woman charged with possession of narcotic drugs without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia and bail jumping; a 47-year-old Sturgeon Bay woman charged with maintaining a drug-trafficking place, possession of fentanyl and possession of drug paraphernalia; a 31-year-old Sturgeon Bay woman found hiding in the residence and taken into custody on outstanding warrants from the Door County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin Department of Corrections; and a 44-year-old Sturgeon Bay woman cited for possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputies seized 16 fentanyl pills, a variety of drug paraphernalia and numerous electronic devices during the execution of the warrant.
The incident remains under investigation, and additional charges may be forthcoming.
