SYRACUSE — A Syracuse woman was arrested for dealing methamphetamine after she allowed a male subject to use the drugs which led to his death.
Pamela Godsey, 48, 605 N. Huntington St., Syracuse, is being charged with dealing methamphetamine, a level 5 felony; and possession of methamphetamine, a level 6 felony.
Officers with the Syracuse Police Department responded to a call about an unresponsive adult male on Sept. 22, 2017, in Syracuse. Police arrived and found the male subject lying on the living room floor. After a period of time, the individual was pronounced dead.
Godsey told police that she had picked up the individual in LaGrange, bringing him to her residence on Sept. 24. On Sept. 26, between midnight and 4.a.m., the individual administered drugs to himself.
Godsey witnessed the individual being loud and flailing his arms around. She believed the individual was under the influence of methamphetamine. Godsey found the individual in the bathtub with his clothes on. He was breathing heavily and sweating.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, Godsey said the individual was lying on the floor, moving his arms and legs uncontrollably and moving in circles. She went and found someone for help.
Godsey started calling people to see what she could do, but realized that she had waited too long to call 911.
On Sept. 28, the individual’s sister-in-law called Godsey, wanting to know what happened. Godsey admitted that the drugs were hers and that she told the individual he didn’t need to ask for drugs, as he knew where they were in the apartment.
She told police that she provided methamphetamine to the individual and gave him $85 to purchase more.
Godsey was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on Feb. 2, with a $10,250 surety and cash bond.
