[ARCHIVED] *UPDATE - Drug Supplier Arrested* Sheriff’s Deputies Save Life with CPR and Naloxone

On March 10, 2017 at approximately 6:40PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the area of Hunt Club Road and Millburn Road in Newport Township for a report of a person unresponsive in a vehicle.


Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located the victim, a 29 year-old man, of Trevor, Wisconsin, unconscious and not breathing. Sheriff’s deputies learned the man recently ingested heroin before becoming unresponsive. Sergeant Robb Briggs began performing CPR on the male while Deputy Tyler Girmscheid administered Naloxone. The man still didn’t become responsive, so Deputy Ashley Pomazal administered additional doses of Naloxone.


After CPR and six doses of Naloxone, the man began breathing on his own and regained consciousness. He was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he is expected to make a full recovery.


This is the sixth life saved to opioid overdose by Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies, just this year.


*UPDATE-DRUG SUPPLIER ARRESTED*

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office Gang Task Force began an investigation to determine the supplier responsible for selling the drugs. Gang task force detectives identified Londale T. Hall, 24, of the 800 block of South Martin Luther King Jr. Ave, Waukegan, as the drug dealer. In the days following the overdose, gang task force detectives made several undercover purchases of heroin from Hall.


On March 29, 2017, Hall was arrested and subsequently charged with five counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver (class 1 felonies) and two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled substance (class 4 felonies).


Hall remains held in the Lake County Jail on $100,000.00 bail. He is next due in court on April 3, 2017 at 9:00AM in courtroom C-120.


Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendant is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
