CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ)– A man who was found overdosed on heroin by police is facing charges after he also had a large amount of drugs on him, police said.
Randy Lytle, 31, of Johnstown had heroin, crystal meth and a gun in his possession when West Hills police found him unresponsive in his Ford F-250 truck at about 1:39 a.m. at the 500 block of Harshberger Road, according to the criminal complaint. Once he woke up and was getting out of the vehicle, officers found the gun along with drug paraphernalia.
The gun’s serial number was allegedly defaced so it could not be made out and police reported that Lytle does not have a permit.
