SeaTac Police / King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that officers recently used Narcan to revive a potential opioid overdose victim, then later found a stolen gun in his car:
City of SeaTac deputies were called on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2020 at 9:04 a.m. to check on a vehicle in the middle of the street in the 4700 block of South 175 Street (map below).
Deputies arrived and located a white Nissan Maxima in the middle of the roadway with a man passed out behind the wheel.
The deputies tried to wake the driver, but could not. The man showed signs of an opioid overdose, so they administered 2 doses of Narcan. After several minutes, the male regained consciousness and medics arrived and took over care.
As deputies removed the driver to administer aid, they had noticed a loaded 30 round magazine on the floor board. They went back to the vehicle and located a fully loaded handgun with a round in the chamber. A check of the serial number showed the firearm was stolen. A check of the male’s name revealed he is a convicted felon for narcotics and previous unlawful weapons possession.
A search of the vehicle also found a clear plastic bag with multiple small round blue tablets. The vehicle was towed for evidence.
After receiving treatment, the male was booked into King County Jail for investigation of Felon in Possession of a Firearm.
