Drug suspect ingests cocaine, hospitalized

THOMASVILLE — Narcotics agents’ suspicions were confirmed when a suspect they encountered began exhibiting signs of medical issues.

Officers thought Nathanial McIntyre, also known as JYD, ingested crack cocaine as he tried to escape.

Thomas County/Thomasville Narcotics/Vice Division agents executed a search warrant at McIntyre’s 501A N. Young St. residence after learning he was selling cocaine at the dwelling.

When agents arrived, McIntyre, who has been arrested in the past for drug offenses, ran inside, followed by agents armed with the search warrant.

“It appeared he had ingested cocaine in our presence,” said Kevin Lee, narcotics/vice commander. “He tried to run from us.”

After a struggle and confrontation, agents found $990 in U.S. currency in McIntyre’s pants pocket.

Officer searched the house and in a kitchen cabinet found two pill bottles containing about 19 grams of crack cocaine.

“They were already cut up into individual pieces for sale,” Lee said.

Scales and plastic bags used to package the cocaine for sale also were found in a kitchen cabinet.

As agents continued the search, the suspect appeared be ill, and his heartbeat was elevated.

“He told us he did eat seven or eight pieces of crack,” Lee said.

Thomas County Emergency Medical Service transported McIntyre to Archbold Memorial Hospital, where he remained for a couple of days to be treated for ingestion of cocaine.

Upon being released from the hospital, McIntyre was transported to the Thomas County Jail, where he was charged with cocaine possession with intent to distribute and obstruction of officer in connection with eating the cocaine and fleeing.
