SUICIDAL MAN ARRESTED BEHIND GREENWOOD GAS STATION
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on several drug-related charges in Greenwood Saturday. The suspect was sitting in a vehicle parked behind a gas station on North Bluff Road for several hours, hunched over and unresponsive. A K9 officer aided deputies in finding syringe pieces, heroin, paraphernalia and pills. When questioned, the suspect claimed that he was attempting to take his own life. He was transported to Community South Hospital for treatment and promptly detained afterwards. Police say community aid to law enforcement keeps neighborhoods safe and drug-free.
