Woman sent to hospital after suspected heroin overdose

A suspected heroin overdose led to the hospitalization of a woman Monday night.

Judy Jackson, Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman, says that Deputies Andrew Whipker and Andrew Densford responded to the area of 3400 W 100 N at 9:41 p.m. after receiving a call about the possible overdose. As Deputies entered the residence, they reported finding a semi-conscious female. A man inside the home told authorities that he had found the woman unconscious in the bedroom and initiated CPR until she responded.

Jackson says that Narcan was administered by Columbus Township Fire personnel. The woman woke up and allegedly told Deputy Whipker that she had injected heroin. Authorities say that a clear plastic container with a small white rock and trace amounts of white powder were lying on a bed near the female.

The woman was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital. Her condition is unknown.
