Man escapes hospital after arrest for suspected overdose

Sept. 10, 2012

A customer found an unconscious man when he tried to open the bathroom door at the Midtown Shell on 641 N. Hawley Road.

According the Wauwatosa police report:

The suspect, a 42-year-old New Berlin man, was conscious but unable to answer questions when the police arrived. The police found a backpack on the scene containing nine hypodermic needles, alcohol prep pads, syringes filled with an agent that counteracts overdoses and three grams of heroin. Police found three grams of marijuana and a pipe on the man after searching him.

Due to the suspect's intoxicated nature, police sent him to Froedtert Hospital. The suspect left the hospital before he was medically released and is still wanted for drug possession.
