Nassau PD: Man arrested in connection to multiple overdoses
Nassau police say they have arrested a man in connection to multiple overdoses in Lakeview.
Lawrence Yearling, 28, was arrested Friday night in a parking lot on Orlando Avenue.
Police say he is linked directly to fatal and nonfatal drug overdoses in his hometown.
When Yearling was taken into custody, police say he had 27 white envelopes stamped with the phrase "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."
Detectives say the envelopes contained heroin and more than 10 grams of crack cocaine. They say the envelopes were identical to those found on the overdose victims.
