Heroin bust in Waupaca
Police found heroin and the driver passed out in a running car.
Michael A. Kallas, 21, Waupaca, was charged with possession of narcotics.
On June 29, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Zeamer responded to a report that a man was unconscious in a tan Chevy Malibu parked at the East Side Mobil gas station on Royalton Street in Waupaca.
When he arrived at the scene, Zeamer found the Malibu still running and the driver slumped over into the passenger’s seat with his seat belt half off.
According to the criminal complaint, the driver was sweaty, pale and unresponsive to numerous attempts to wake him. He had fresh track marks on his left arm.
Zeamer repositioned the man so he was sitting upright and adjusted his head and neck several times to help him breathe.
Zeamer also reported finding syringes and .265 grams of heroin in the car.
The deputy was able to identify the driver from the ID in his wallet.
Paramedics arrived and administered Narcan.
Officers and paramedics worked together to remove Kallas from the car and place him in an ambulance.
Kallas faces up to 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted.
