A Warsaw man was arrested after allegedly selling pills to a man who later died.
Curtis Todd Click, 35, of 469 S. Circle Drive West, Warsaw, is charged with dealing in a controlled substance resulting in death, a level 6 felony.
He was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail at 11:21 a.m. Wednesday on a $100,500 preliminary bond.
According to the probable cause affidavit, at about 8:03 p.m. June 29, a Warsaw Police Department officer responded to a call about a man not breathing. The officer found Christopher Noble not breathing in his home and it appeared to the officer there was evidence Noble had been dead for some time, stated court documents.
The officer saw a belt that appeared to be used as a tourniquet with a hypodermic syringe with fluid inside near the belt. On the table across the room there allegedly was a broken spoon that contained a cotton swab, a powdery substance on the table and a plastic bag that contained a powdery substance that both field tested presumptive positive for fentanyl.
The officer spoke to Noble’s wife and requested permission to collect the narcotics and she consented to a search. Officers collected the drug items in the residence.
The officers searched Noble’s vehicle and found his wallet that contained a folded $5 bill that contained a powdery substance that field tested presumptive for fentanyl.
The officer spoke with Noble’s wife who said Noble had allegedly been acting different and, on June 29, she confronted him and Noble said he got some pills from a customer at work by the name of Hank.
Officers searched Noble’s phone and found a text thread to Click’s number that talked about getting “Fetty” pills on multiple occasions. The most recent message was on June 28.
On June 30, officers spoke with Click. Click said he’d come in for an interview regarding Noble’s overdose. Click’s phone was taken in to officers’ possession for preservation of evidence.
Click said he was not out trying to deal and he wasn’t making a whole lot. Click said he should have known better, but he didn’t and he “knew this could happen.”
Click said he wasn’t a dealer, but if someone was needing drugs, they would give Click their money for drugs. Click then said, “Well, and, of course, that is pretty much the definition of dealing right there.”
Click admitted to giving pills to Noble and Click knew Noble was dead.
On Aug. 18, the officer received the autopsy report and toxicology report on Noble. The toxicology report stated Noble had fentanyl in his system when he died. The autopsy showed the cause of death to be accidental fentanyl toxicity.
