Police: Massapequa Park brothers face drug charges
Two Massapequa Park brothers face drug charges after Nassau County police Sunday found a woman in their home unconscious because of heroin use, Seventh Squad detectives said.
Police answering a call for an unconscious woman responded to 168 Atlantic Ave. at about 3:30 p.m. They said they determined she was unconscious after taking heroin, so rescue workers administered Narcan, which can reverse the effects of opioid depression, according to the Food and Drug Administration website.
The woman was taken to a hospital and is listed in stable condition, police said.
Police said heroin and cocaine were recovered at the scene.
Bryan Luther, 18, and Thomas Luther, 23, his brother, both of 168 Atlantic Ave., were arrested on charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance. Also, Bryan Luther is charged with criminal injection of a narcotic, police said.
They are scheduled to be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
