WARSAW — Two people from Warsaw face criminal charges after officers responded to a drug overdose.
Lindsey Marie Wray, 25; and Todd Michael Clay, 29, both of 212 S. Union St. C., Warsaw, are each charged with possession of cocaine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a syringe and neglect of a dependent, all level 6 felonies; possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor.
On April 6, a Warsaw Police officer responded to a report of a drug overdose. Upon arrival, the officer noticed Clay was extremely pale and lying unconscious in a pool of liquid. Medical personnel arrived and began providing medical treatment to Clay, who survived.
According to court documents, while at the scene, officers noticed an orange cap to a syringe and a plastic bag on the floor next to Clay. There were also several syringes and plastic bags in the vicinity.
One of the officers spoke with Wray, who said the apartment belonged to her and that Clay was on the apartment’s lease. Wray gave officers permission to search the residence and her cellphone. Officers also obtained a search warrant for the residence.
In the residence, officers found multiple syringe caps and drug paraphernalia. One box containing 32 syringes was also discovered. Bags containing 0.8 grams of cocaine and 1.2 grams of marijuana, and a smoking device with methamphetamine residue, were found in the residence.
During the initial investigation, officers found two children were present at the time of the incident. The children witnessed Clay laying unconscious. Most of the illegal drug items were found next to items the children would commonly use and the areas they would frequent.
Wray was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on April 6, with a $5,250 surety and cash bond.
A warrant was issued for Clay’s arrest on April 7.
