Clarksville man caught trying to flush heroin down toilet before overdosing, per report

31-year-old Jon Paul Proctor was charged with tampering with evidence after his father reported to police that he may have overdosed and led to the discovery of “suspected heroin” to be found in his toilet.

On April 23rd, Officer Novenario was dispatched to 220 Hawkins Road in reference to a potential overdose. Upon arrival, Fred Proctor advised that he believed his son Jon Proctor had overdosed but regained consciousness right after police arrival and told his father he was fine.

The officer then spoke with Jon in the bathroom and while doing so, noticed a folded piece of paper along with a dollar bill floating in the toilet. When the officer questioned Jon about the items in the toilet, he admitted it was “old heroin” and was trying to get rid of it before police arrived.

Officers noted the folded piece of paper in the toilet contained a “bluish powdery substance” that was suspected heroin, but could not be field-tested since it was tampered with by being thrown into the toilet, per the affidavit.

Officers stated in the affidavit the suspected heroin will be sent off to TBI to be tested and charges for simple possession were pending.

Jon Paul Proctor was arrested and charged with tampering with evidence. His bond was set at $50,000.
