A member of the Madison County District Attorney's Office has resigned after deputies responded to his home last week for a report of two people overdosing on fentanyl-laced cocaine, according to the county sheriff's department.
Deputies and medical personnel responded to the home of Assistant District Attorney Bradley J. Moses at around 9 p.m. on July 30 for a possible overdose and a report that two people were unconscious and unresponsive, the sheriff's office said in a statement Friday afternoon.
Both people were given multiple doses of Narcan by deputies and first responders prior to being transported to Syracuse-area hospitals for treatment, the sheriff's office said, adding that both people have been released.
A sample of a substance found during a search of the home tested positive for fentanyl, an opioid that is far stronger than heroin, the sheriff's office said.
County District Attorney Bill Gabor released a statement Friday, saying the office was aware "of a life-threatening incident which occurred on July 30, 2022."
"The Madison County Sheriff’s Office responded and is completing its investigation," Gabor said. "One of the individuals involved was a member of the District Attorney’s Office. He is completing a Family Leave application to address a personal problem and has offered his resignation; which will be accepted.”
