On November 6th, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Beck was dispatched to 963 Calvert Drive, where one female had just overdosed and another female was under the influence, in response to an overdose call. Upon arrival, contact was made with Joshua Hollingsworth. He was walking to a car that was parked in the driveway. When Joshua was asked if he had anything on him, he pulled a syringe out of his pocket and handed it to the deputy. Joshua gave a cigarette box with 1.2 grams of methamphetamine and 0.4 grams of fentanyl inside to the deputy.

Joshua Hollingsworth was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of fentanyl with intent to resale. His charge of methamphetamine for resale was dismissed, and he plead guilty to a lesser charge of simple possession. Joshua was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail, but he is to serve 90 days time with five days credit, then his time is to be suspended with conditions of good behavior and probation.
