A Leesburg man was charged Saturday in connection with an overdose that occurred in Front Royal earlier this month.
Johnny Robinson, 39, was indicted on one count of homicide and four counts of manufacturing or the sale of a controlled substance by a Warren County Circuit Court grand jury on June 14, Front Royal Police Det. David Fogle said by phone interview Monday.
The indictment was sealed until Robinson was located. He was found over the weekend by the Fairfax City Police Department, Fogle said.
The overdose was reported just after midnight on June 13 in the 300 block of Kendrick Lane in Front Royal, Fogle said.
A 33-year-old woman who lived there reported the overdose of a 25-year-old man, Fogle said.
The Warren County Fire and Rescue Department arrived on the scene and pronounced the man dead, Fogle said. The woman was not injured, Fogle said.
Robinson had sold the heroin to the woman and the man, although it's not clear exactly how much he sold them, Fogle said. It also wasn’t immediately clear if Robinson had sold the drugs to them at the Front Royal residence or if they picked the drugs up in Leesburg.
Evidence was seized from the room, but Fogle declined to say what exactly because of the ongoing investigation.
The Front Royal Police Department Criminal Investigations Division and the Northwest Virginia Regional Drug and Gang Task Force responded as with any drug incident, Fogle said.
Robinson is being held at the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail without bond. No court date has been set according to online records.
Fogle said anyone battling addiction is asked to seek help by calling the Front Royal Police Department at 540-635-2111.
