Tips from the public helped police apprehend a 39-year-old man considered a person of interest in the heroin overdose death of a Three Rivers woman.
Chief Tom Bringman said officers were called at 7:20 a.m. Monday to the 900 block of Fifth Street in response to a possible overdose. Police and fire personnel found an unresponsive woman at the residence and she was later declared deceased.
Meanwhile, witnesses told authorities a man was seen running from the scene prior to the arrival of police and fire personnel.
Robert Lee Guthrie was found later in the day and was wanted on warrants for absconding from probation on an original charge of possession of amphetamines and methamphetamine.
