Police reportedly found an open pack of beer plus multiple empty cans and drug paraphernalia in the room as well as a small blue pill believed to be Oxycontin, according to a report.
A search warrant for Walker’s cellphone revealed that he exchanged multiple calls and text messages with a contact named “Mell” on Dec. 12 and 13. On Dec. 12, Walker sent Mell the apartment’s address and Mell later texted: “How much bud you tryna get?” the report stated. Mell also texted Walker the next day “How y like them 30s,” which investigators believed referenced the suspected 30mg Oxycontin pill found in Walker’s bedroom.
Lab results provided to investigators in July found the pill contained fentanyl even though it appeared to be an oxycodone pill.
Mell later was identified as Carter, who reportedly worked with Walker and his roommate. A warrant was issued for Carter on Feb. 21 and he was arrested March 10.
Carter reportedly said during an interview with investigators that he sold two pills he believed were Oxycontin to Walker.
Carter is held on $50,000 bond in the Miami County Jail.
he is next scheduled to appear Thursday for a preliminary hearing in court.
