Ventura | Suspect arrested after Heroin user slipped Fentanyl, Overdosed – Saved by Fire Department

Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

On August 26th, 2020, at approximately 1659, patrol officers responded to Macy’s department store reference a subject overdosing on Fentanyl. Ventura City Fire personnel responded and were able to revive the overdosed victim by administering Narcan (naloxone HCI), which is used for the treatment of an opioid emergency.

During the investigation, officers learned the overdose victim was told he bought Heroin but was actually sold Fentanyl. He used too much of the narcotic and quickly overdosed.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80-100 times stronger than morphine. Fentanyl is often added to other drugs to increase their potency. Many users believe that they are purchasing Heroin and do not know that they are buying Fentanyl – which often results in overdose deaths.

On August 28th, 2020, members of the Ventura Police Department Narcotics SCU unit completed the investigation into narcotics sales of Fentanyl, resulting in an overdose. Detectives using investigative tools were able to identify, detain, and arrest suspect Robbin Parks 10-10-1961 (Ventura Resident) for furnishing narcotics.

A search of the Ventura County Superior Courts shows that Parks has prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance and possession for sales of a controlled substance.
