A New Way to Beat the Heat? RPD Uncover Suspected Fentanyl Popsicles Following Search


Richmond Police recently pulled a vehicle over in the Richmond Green area after a suspect was seen leaving a suspected drug trafficking area that was being watched.

According to the citation, officers allegedly observed John C. Miller leaving the home that was under surveillance with a large white trash bag earlier this week. Miller allegedly threw the bag in a dumpster, and when searched police found meth pipes and various drug paraphernalia. When detained, police say that Miller kept putting his hand in his pocket despite being told by officers to stay still.

Miller was found to have a warrant, and was searched. Police then uncovered baggies with both suspected methamphetamine and heroin. The citation continues that on the way to the police department, more suspected heroin was uncovered and Miller allegedly admitted that he was in fact trafficking both drugs.

When a search warrant was executed on Miller’s Four Mile Avenue residence, police uncovered popsicles with suspected fentanyl in them. Awaiting lab results on these items, further charges are pending. Miller is lodged in the Madison County Detention Center and charged with trafficking in both heroin and methamphetamine, tampering with physical evidence, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
