Man charged with corrupting another with drugs



Justin Haynes, 21, of 10266 N. County Road 54, Lewistown, was charged with a felony count of corrupting another with drugs following an incident Tuesday evening.

Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office received a call from Indian Lake EMS about 8:45 p.m. in reference to a woman who reportedly had overdosed and had been dropped off at the station, 301 N. Oak St., Lakeview.

The woman, Ashley Runkle, 19, of 11455 Township Road 266, Lakeview, was transported by squad to Mary Rutan Hospital.

Deputies responded to the hospital’s emergency room, where they spoke with Ms. Runkle. She said Mr. Haynes had provided her with an oxycodone pill. She was issued a summons for drug abuse.

Mr. Haynes was questioned at his residence. He said he had dropped Ms. Runkle off at the EMS station, and couldn’t explain to deputies why he didn’t call 911.

The defendant was transported to the Logan County Jail.
