UPDATED — Port Angeles man killed in tractor-trailer crash on state Highway 104 near Hood Canal Bridge
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office was notified Thursday that an 18-year-old woman had been admitted to Jefferson Healthcare hospital suffering from a methamphetamine overdose, a sheriff’s spokesman said over the weekend.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Derrick Alan Jevne, 28, of Port Townsend the next day for investigation of delivery of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment.
They booked him into the Jefferson County jail, where he remained Sunday.
Deputies said they believe that Jevne had injected the woman with meth on three different occasions within the past week, and he had provided her instruction on how to inject the drug using a YouTube.com video demonstration.
The Sheriff’s Office said it gained a search warrant and searched Jevne’s home Saturday, finding recovered drug paraphernalia and approximately a quarter-pound of methamphetamine that has an estimated street value of $4,000.
