NORTH COLLEGE HILL, Ohio – Three overdoses on the same day led investigators to a man accused of selling fentanyl, heroin and crack cocaine, according to Lt. Tom Fallon.

Authorities executed a search warrant and arrested Darrell Seay, 44, on Friday on charges of corrupting another with drugs, trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs and endangering children, Fallon said.

Investigators recovered the following from 1528 Gardenwood Ct.:

  • 673 grams of suspected fentanyl
  • 105 grams of suspected cocaine
  • 60 grams of suspected crack cocaine
  • 62 grams of suspected heroin

The investigation started when Cincinnati police officers found someone who had overdosed in a front yard on Jan. 14, Fallon said. Officers then found two people who had overdosed in a nearby home. Cincinnati firefighters revived all three people.

The Cincinnati Police Department then contacted the Hamilton County Heroin Task Force, and authorities initiated an investigation.

Investigators purchased drugs from Seay several times; three of those times Seay’s two-year-old daughter was in the car while he sold fentanyl, Fallon said.

Seay is being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center.
