Another heroin overdose in Waupaca resulted in felony narcotics charges against four people.
The incident took place during a hotel swimming party with children present.
Joshua D. Parker, 34, Waupaca, is charged with delivery of heroin, possession of narcotics and possession of a controlled substance.
Stephanie R. Tankersley, 24, Waupaca, is charged with delivery of heroin as party to a crime.
Tabatha S. Mailo-Podewils, 33, Waupaca, is charged with delivery of heroin.
Joshua J. Armon, 30, Scandinavia, is charged with possession of heroin as party to a crime.
Waupaca Police officers Nathan Nelson and Paul Benzschawel responded to an emergency call at the Village Inn in Waupaca on June 14, 2014. When they arrived, they found Armon in a bathtub, unresponsive and not breathing. His lips were blue and his pulse was weak.
Emergency medical personnel at the scene said Armon had track marks in his arms, and they believed he was suffering from a drug overdose. They administered Narcan, and Armon began breathing again.
Initially, Armon denied shooting heroin and said he had been snorting Oxycontin, police say. He also denied knowing anything about the syringe and spoon Nelson found in the bathtub.
According to the criminal complaint, Tankersley had rented a room at the Village Inn so she, her children and some friends could use the swimming pool.
Earlier that day, investigators say Tankersley drove Armon and Mailo-Podewils to the Waupaca Hotel in downtown Waupaca. Armon gave $40 to Mailo-Podewils to buy a bindle of heroin. She and Tankersley then went inside where they allegedly purchased the heroin from Parker.
While Tankersley was at the swimming pool with her two children. Armon and Mailo-Podewils went into her hotel room. A few minutes later, Mailo-Podewils was screaming for someone to call 911, the complaint says.
On Sept. 17, 2014, an undercover officer and a police informant arranged to purchase heroin from Parker. At that time, he was living on the 500 block of North Street.
The officer and the informant picked up Parker from his apartment, then drove him to an overflow parking lot in King. Parker left the vehicle, and the officer did not see where he went.
When he returned, Parker reportedly sold the officer $90 worth of heroin.
Because Parker was convicted of a felony marijuana possession in December 2011, his penalties could be doubled. He faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted of delivery of heroin.
