Police found drugs and nearly 100 needles when they responded to an overdose in Waupaca.
Dustin L. Bohringer, 26, Waupaca, is charged with felony possession of marijuana, two counts of illegal possession of prescription drugs and three counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Tuesday, Jan. 19, Waupaca Police Officer Nate Nelson was dispatched to the Tower Road apartments in response to a reported drug overdose.
When Nelson arrived at the building, Bohringer, who was headed down a stairwell, directed him to the apartment where he found 21-year-old Amber M. Bydynkowski lying on a couch in a bedroom, pale and unresponsive.
Nelson shook Bydynkowski. She opened her eyes momentarily, then closed them again.
A Gold Cross Ambulance arrived, and paramedics administered Narcan.
According to the criminal complaint, Bohringer told Nelson that Bydynkowski was visiting from La Crosse. He said she passed out after leaving the bathroom. Bohringer reportedly administered two doses of Narcan to no effect.
Bydynkowski was later charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Bohringer told Nelson he was a heroin user and had injected heroin earlier that day, the complaint says.
Nelson and Sgt. Mario Graceffa executed a search warrant of the apartment. They seized 86 used syringes from a dresser in Bohringer’s bedroom, along with unused needles, alcohol prep pads, aluminum foil and tourniquets. They also reported finding pills and marijuana.
Bohringer was convicted of misdemeanor possession of marijuana on July 29, 2011, and placed on one year of probation.
One month after he was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property, Bohringer’s probation was revoked on Jan. 5, 2012, and he was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
On Jan. 31, 2012, Bohringer was convicted on the disorderly and criminal damage charges and placed on one year of probation.
On Nov. 20, 2012, his probation was revoked, and he was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
