Archbold police responded to a suspected drug overdose about 2:13 am, Tuesday, Aug. 10, a report states.

At about 2:13 am, Fulton County sheriff dispatchers advised officers of a reported overdose in the 800 block of West Street.

An officer responding to the call found the subject “unconscious and not breathing.”

The officer reported two doses of NARCAN were administered to the subject. NARCAN is a nasal spray that can counteract the effects of an opioid overdose.

Archbold paramedics continued life-saving efforts, and the subject returned to consciousness soon after.

The report indicates “evidence of narcotics were located” at the scene.

The report states officers recovered “miscellaneous marijuana paraphernalia including three tobacco pipes, a locking plastic bag containing ‘a white powdery substance,’ a water bottle with a white liquid on the bottom,” and other items.

The case is marked closed.

In another case, a FCSD dispatcher advised police on Saturday, Aug. 7, that at about 9:21 pm, Archbold Rescue was dispatched to a residence in Colony Meadows on a report of an individual having difficulty breathing.

Dispatchers advised they were “unable to obtain pertinent information from the person reporting the incident.”

Officers and a rescue squad arrived, the officers called for someone to come to the front and knocked, but there was no answer.

The front door was open. They called out again before entering, but still got no response.

An officer and a rescue crew went inside and found a witness who was on the phone with a second subject who was transporting the victim to a hospital.

The witness told officers the subject was having a diabetic attack.

While at the residence officers found drug paraphernalia described as a tan bowl with burnt residue. The object was seized.

Police marked the case closed.
