BELMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WTRF) – A fugitive from Kentucky was spotted sleeping in his car, outside an apartment complex behind Bridgeport High School.
A deputy went to check it out, and the man took off running.
Belmont County Chief Investigator Ryan Allar said the deputy began chasing the man, 28-year-old Roger Hodgeson of Owensboro, Kentucky.
Allar said Hodgeson was discovered lying in some bushes, unresponsive, having apparently overdosed.
Deputies administered Narcan, summoned an e-squad and now Hodgeson is recovering under guard in an undisclosed facility. Kentucky authorities are arranging to come get him. Allar said Hodgeson was wanted on a parole violation stemming from drug trafficking and gun charges.
