2nd man charged in Maine woman’s overdose death

January 8, 2019

SULLIVAN, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine say they’ve arrested a second man in connection with the sale of drugs to a woman who died of an overdose of fentanyl.

They say 44-year-old Richard Drost of Sullivan was arrested on Monday on a warrant for unlawful trafficking of scheduled drugs. Police say Drost and another man, 54-year-old James Grindel of Waltham, provided fentanyl to 34-year-old Nina Wallace of Sullivan.

Police investigated Wallace’s death after responding to a 911 call in August in Franklin in which the caller reported she was not breathing.

A person who answered a phone number listed under Drost’s name on Tuesday said Drost is in jail. The person declined to comment further. It was unclear whether Drost or Grindel was represented by a lawyer.
