A 22-year-old Charlestown man is dealing with fentanyl expenses after first responders discovered a number of overdose victims at a Hyde Park scene early Sunday morning, in keeping with the Boston Police Department.
Police officers responded to 1442 Hyde Park Ave., for a report of an overdose at round 5:13 a.m.
Boston EMS paramedics and Boston firefighters had been attending to a number of overdose victims when officers arrived. Narcan was administered to the victims, and so they all regained consciousness. Boston EMS transported three girls and one man to native hospitals for therapy.
The victims had snorted a powdery substance earlier than collapsing, in keeping with police. Officers then discovered a fanny pack containing 11 small plastic baggage of a white powdery substance belonging to a different particular person on scene, who was later recognized as Gilbert Eatherton, 22, of Charlestown.
He was arrested and charged with: trafficking fentanyl (greater than 10 grams), distribution of Class A medication, and possession of Class A medication. Eatherton is predicted to be arraigned in West Roxbury courtroom.
This incident in Hyde Park comes a number of months after Boston Police issued a group alert about deadly drug overdoses in Hyde Park.
Boston Police wrote in that warning to residents, “While no illegal drugs are ever considered to be safe, fentanyl or other unknown substances can be easily mixed with those illegal drugs, which can increase the risk of a fatal overdose.”
