A 20-year-old Waynesboro man is facing several drug charges after a teenager died from a drug overdose.
Officers responded to the west end of the city on March 29 for a suspected overdose of a juvenile, Waynesboro Police said. The juvenile was transported to Augusta Health in Fishersville and later transferred to UVa Hospital in Charlottesville.
The juvenile remained in critical condition at UVa until he died in the evening hours on Saturday, police said. Because of his age, the identity of the juvenile will not be released.
Waynesboro Police subsequently executed a search warrant at a residence in the 600 block of North Augusta Avenue in Waynesboro.
On Friday, Dylan Wright was arrested on two misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, one felony count of distribution of drugs to persons under 18, and two felony counts of manufacturing, selling, giving, distributing, or possessing with intent to manufacture, sell, give, or distribute a controlled substance.
Wright is being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail.
Police said Tuesday the investigation is ongoing.
