Area man charged with endangering welfare of a child after overdosing on an illegal drug with two minors in the home
Old Lycoming Township police have charged Justin Fisher, 27, of 2002 Zuni Lane, with two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child after he overdosed in his home on an illegal drug while taking care of his two children, both under the age of 7, on April 23, according to court records filed at the office of District Judge William Solomon.
Fisher was found unresponsive on the kitchen floor by his girlfriend when she returned home from the store about 2:30 p.m., Patrolwoman Shyanne McKivison said in court papers.
Soon after officers arrived on the scene, Fisher was revived through the use of Narcan, McKivison said. The affidavit did not say what drug Fisher overdosed on or if he was taken to the hospital.
Fisher, now living at 241 Back St., Montoursville, is free on $15,000 bail.
In another criminal case, Samuel Agor, 28, formerly of the 700 block of Arch Street, faces two sets of state police charges, including one stemming from a break-in at Spectrum Business Forms at 1316 Commerce Park Drive in Loyalsock Township on Aug. 2.
Police alleged Agor, who is homeless, climbed through a window to get into the business and then ransacked an office before leaving with a book of checks, Trooper Troy Hansen said.
A footprint lifted at the crime scene led investigators to Agor after he was taken into custody on another matter in mid-August.
When he was taken into custody, Agor was “wearing shoes with the same shoe print as the print that was lifted from the scene of the burglary,” Hansen said. At the time, Agor was staying at “a camp site” near Spectrum, the trooper said.
When he was questioned about the break-in, Agor said he probably broke into the business, but then added he was “so high that he didn’t remember if he did it or not,” Hansen said.
Arraigned last week on charges of burglary, felony trespassing and theft, Agor was recommitted to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $15,000 bail.
When he waived his hearing on these charges on Monday before District Judge Gary Whiteman, he was arraigned on charges of theft from motor vehicle and receiving stolen property for allegedly stealing an assortment of cash from several parked vehicles on Pennsylvania Avenue, Faxon Circle, Lose Avenue and Shiffler Avenue, all in Loyalsock Township, overnight Aug. 1. He was recommitted in lieu of an additional $5,000 bail.
He has been an inmate since Aug. 18 when he was arrested for allegedly stealing items from several parked vehicles.
In a third case, Alonna Walker, 38, of Jersey City, New Jersey, faces charges of aggravated assault, simple assault and disorderly conduct after allegedly spitting in the faces of a police officer and a paramedic as she was being treated in the 800 block of Washington Boulevard about 4:20 p.m. on May 2, city police said.
Once at UPMC Williamsport, Walker kicked the same officer in the chest, police alleged. She remains jailed in lieu of $50,000 bail after waiving her preliminary hearing last week.
