Scott County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call that Anthony Fortner, 46, of rural Scottsburg was overdoing. When authorities arrived they found Fortner unresponsive and not breathing.

Deputies searched the home and property and found a purse, a plastic bag tested positive for methamphetamine, pills, and a bag of marijuana. Police K-9 Cyrus was deployed and indicated the presence of an additional narcotic substance near a shrub.
The Kings were taken into custody at that time. Once Fortner was released from medical care, he was placed under arrest as well.
Fortner faces charges of maintaining common nuisance, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of syringe,
