Boston Police report arresting a Charlestown man on charges he sold fentanyl to four people early Sunday in Hyde Park, which they say they found out about when somebody called 911 to report multiple people collapsed with overdoses.
Police say Boston EMTs and firefighters were the first to arrive at 1442 Hyde Park Ave. around 5:10 a.m., where they found three women and a man collapsed on the ground. They revived all four with Narcan, then EMTs transported them to local hospitals for further treatment.
Officers learned the victims had snorted a powdery substance before collapsing. Officers located a fanny pack containing eleven small plastic bags of a white powdery substance belonging to another person on scene, later identified as Gilbert Eatherton, 22, of Charlestown.
He was charged with trafficking more than 10 grams of fentanyl, distribution of Class A drugs and possession of Class A drugs, police say.
