Police attempted to contact known individuals who know the missing subject but were unable to at the time. He was entered in LEADs as missing. No further details were listed.

• Police arrested a 22-year-old female and charged a 41-year-old female for alleged drug abuse instrument possession after emergency services responded to a drug-related incident on Fife Avenue at 9:09 a.m. on Feb. 9. According to the report, units responded to the report of an unconscious female in a room at a Fife Avenue building. Upon arrival, police located the 41-year-old female lying on the floor. Police were able to get the female to wake up and kept her awake until Wilmington FD arrived. The report advised the female “had blood down her arm and shirt.” The officer observed a syringe on the sink next to her, a plastic spoon with white powder residue and a meth pipe was located next to the bed. Police also located digital scales on the bed near the pipe and empty small clear Ziploc-style bags. Once awakened and standing up with assistance of the EMS crew, she asked for her purse. Police advised her that they had located drugs and a syringe in the room. The female stated “All the drug stuff is mine,” the report states. Items were seized as evidence.

The female was transported to CMH for medical treatment. Police asked what happened and she said she was a “heroin user for 20 years and that she used too much heroin apparently,” the report states. Police asked about the glass pipe and she stated she used the pipe for smoking ICE (meth). Police advised the female she would be charged with drug abuse instrument possession and drug paraphernalia. The female was released from the hospital shortly after and came to the Wilmington PD to pick up her charges and released with a court date.
